NGA Play at the National Gallery of Australia

Galleries, Museums and Collections

NGA Play is the National Gallery of Australia’s dedicated kids and family space. It is free and open daily.

NGA Play has been transformed by dynamic Indonesian art duo Indieguerillas, just in time for summer holidays. Dive into their outrageously fun Indonesian-Pop world with epic murals, interactive installations and playful art projects, all inspired by the NGA’s collection of Indonesian textiles.

Known for creating surprising spaces that encourage community engagement, Indieguerillas’ interactive artworks and creative art projects fill NGA Play with colour and sound.

Hop on a bicycle to activate a wayang beber scroll-like screen featuring works from the NGA’s outstanding American art collection, while a second bicycle triggers the sound of an Indonesian gamelan orchestra.

Explore the value of harmony through an interactive video, or make your own digital avatar using the NGA Play app. Play with Javanese puppets and create 3D paper toys to take home or leave for display in the YEAH GALLERY.

NGA Play is developed with the support of NGA Council member Tim Fairfax AC, in memory of Betty Churcher AO.
