Little Miss and I love exploring the Melbourne CBD. If you're thinking of heading into the city soon, checkout our list of activities below that you can do with the little ones - most of them are free which is a bonus! And if you need a place to feed, change or play while you're out exploring, checkout our list of parents rooms including one at the NGV.
3. National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) at St Kilda Road
While you're there, relax in the Great Hall famous for its stunning stained glass ceiling by Leonard French. You and the kids can lie on the floor, look up and admire the stained glass ceiling, chat with friends or enjoy a snack.
Enjoy a picnic outside on the lawns of the NGV gardens and let the kids have a play on the climbing structure and explore the lawns and sculptures while you have a coffee. The upcoming NGV Architecture Commission which will stand in the NGV gardens will be M@ Studio Architects' Car Wash inspired design which will pop up in October 2016.
4. NGV Australia: Ian Potter Centre
The Ian Potter Centre located at Fed Square is another great NGV site to explore, throughout the year it hosts several free kid friendly exhibitions. We have enjoyed in the past like Emily Floyd: The Dawn exhibition as well as Bunyips and Dragons - Australian Children's Book Illustrations and many others as well as permanent exhibitions like the Australian Art collection.
5. State Library of Victoria - Baby Bounce & Storytime, Play Pod and exhibitions
