PAULINE GANDEL CHIL­DREN’S GALLERY

Brand new and burst­ing with life, this gallery is a unique place for young chil­dren (ba­bies to five years old) to learn, play, stay and grow to­gether. The re­de­vel­oped gallery features a di­nosaur dig to ex­ca­vate fos­sils, a dis­cov­ery gar­den, mu­seum ob­jects and an im­mer­sive “cam­ou­flage disco” where chil­dren can turn into spotty and stripy an­i­mals. It’s like face-paint­ing but more se­ri­ous. There’s even a tun­nel en­trance. Mel­bourne Mu­seum. 11 Ni­chol­son St, Carl­ton. Daily, 10am-5pm. $14, kids free. mu­se­umvic­to­ria.com.au/ mel­bourne­mu­seum/abou­tus/the-pauline-gan­delchil­drens-gallery
