The Museum of Play and Art in Geelong

MoPA: Museum of Play and Art

Geelong’s first Children’s Museum MoPA: Museum of Play and Art is now open at the historic Wintergarden Building in McKillop Street.



Home to an impressive collection of fully immersive exhibits and experiences, the play-based-learning offered by the Museum is not only loads of fun, but has also been aligned with the Early Learning Framework for Kindergarten aged children and with the Victorian Curriculum for Children in early primary school.



You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April 2019 at Fitzroy Gardens.
Family Photo offer affordable, outdoor photography sessions which are perfect for families with little ones who can't sit still!
MoPA encourages families near and far to immerse in a colourful space featuring beautifully designed exhibits such as a soft play zone designed for toddlers, creative block assembly and identity-building sculpture.

Sunset City for the bigger kids, rewards climbers with an impressive view over the entire museum; the crowd-favourite Wind Wall, brought home to Geelong from the world’s biggest and best Children’s museums; a Zoom Room filled with LEGO® that children can build with and race down giant ramps and jumps; and the now-famous MoPA Art Car that allows children to layer their creation on a real VW bug, challenging the young artists to consider just how unusual a canvas can be, and much more.



It is advisable to pre-book sessions in advance to avoid disappointment, particularly during school holidays and weekends.
