The Heide Museum of Modern Art is another top destination for art lovers – this is because the museum offers an insight to Australia’s rich cultural history, classic art, contemporary forms of modern art and, of course, unique architecture.
This quaint gallery is just 15 minutes from Melbourne’s vibrant CBD.
Heide Museum of Modern Art & Melbourne Opening Hours
The museum is 16 acres that features a sculpture park, historic kitchen garden, meadow, and three uniquely designed sites for exhibitions (popularly known as Heide I, II and III).
Visitors interested in exploring this museum should spend at least few hours, as there is a lot to see and experience.
The site also features the Heide Store and the fully serviced Café Vue. Each of these is open during the museum’s opening hours; you can even find a wide variety of souvenirs and postcards here. The café is also ideal for grabbing a quick bite and drink.
The Heide Museum of Modern Art has undergone a major renovation in the past few years. After its redevelopment, the site includes many new structures and sculptures, with the new buildings designed by the notable architect O’Connor and Houle. Even the garden space is beautifully designed with many art exhibits and extensions.
Visitors of all ages are welcome to explore the area, view the exhibits, and enjoy the Australian and contemporary art. The museum also features an array of impressive temporary collections of exhibits and art works.
Lastly, the museum’s wide collection of exotic and herb gardens are worth exploring.
