Family visits

The Library has loads of fun things to do that are suitable for the whole family – and most of them are free.

You can see Ned Kelly's armour or a medieval manuscript in our permanent exhibitions, join in school holiday activities, attend a free guided tour, watch a film, listen to music or sit in on storytime.

We also have chess, a range of games consoles and a Play Pod (in Experimedia) for younger children to enjoy. In the Play Pod you can make and decorate a Ned Kelly helmet, pick from a huge selection of children's stories, enjoy our interactive 'Elicit' display. Or, use computers to surf the internet or explore our recommended websites for children.
