Time Out Melbourne

Heide Museum of Modern Art is a unique space – a synthesis of indoor and outdoor environments, a place of modern and contemporary art and design with a rich and colourful art heritage and social history.

A fantastic modernist house in sprawling parklands, once owned by art collectors John and Sunday Reed, this is both an important piece of Australian art history and a vital contemporary art gallery. Entry to the Gardens and Sculpture Park is free and the cost for admission to all galleries is $14 adult and $10 concession.

The retail space stocks quality art supplies, jewellery, homewares and toys – but the real drawcard is the chance to take home a treasure created by one of the artists featured in the gallery. Pieces range from a plywood rainbow clock by Melbourne artist Emily Floyd to a decorative plate by Archibald Prize-winning painter Del Kathryn Barton.
