#Melbourne Museum Children's Gallery

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

In collaboration with Melbourne Museum Exhibitions and the Museum’s Senior Exhibition Designer Pete Wilson and UAP developed an integrated playscape for the new Pauline Gandel Children’s Gallery. Intended for use by babies to 5-year-olds, the Children’s Gallery is designed for exploration, play and learning.

At the centre of the new indoor space is a large climbing structure and two elevated dome canopies. Children are invited to explore the many internal spaces, testing dexterity and calling upon different motor skills in response to a variety of rope types, weaves and tunnels.

Inspired by pattern, the Children’s Gallery also includes an interactive space where visitors can pull ropes to move large overhead discs that spin to create new shapes, patterns and visual illusions.
