An Excellent Adventure

Free entry

NGV International

NGV Kids Space, Level G

31 Mar 12 – 3 Feb 13

An Excellent Adventure invites children on a journey inspired by a time when sailing ships explored the seven seas. Climb aboard with our two intrepid young adventurers and along the way discover treasures, stories, myths and legends. Peek into the wonderful cabinets of curiosities to examine the intricacies of the ushabti figures from Egypt, ancient stories recorded on artworks from the Mediterranean and Asian symbols found throughout the National Gallery of Victoria collection. Through hands on and multimedia experiences, children aged 0 – 8 and their families can journey together to explore the world through art. Excellent!
