This is a magical place. What wonderful grounds and amazing exhibitions. It's like stepping back in time to glimpse at some of Australia's finest artists at work and at play. Highly recommended
Great place to visit. A unique mixture of three exhibition spaces - historic, modernist and modern, set in beautiful gardens, dotted with sculptures, which wind onto the Yarra River. And to top it all - the elegant Cafe Heide. Wonderful spot for art and nature lovers, in any social configuration...!
A wonderful venue. Old houses where many of Australia's most famous artists have lived and worked, including where Sidney Nolan painted some of his famous Ned Kelly series paintings. A stunning gallery and annex in adjoining modernist house 'Heidi II', as well as expansive grounds with picnic areas and many sculptures make HMoMA a great day out for the family.
A great place to spend a sunny weekend day, wandering about or picnicking. If you’re not into galleries as such, then this is very much a weather dependant activity. The cafe is pretty stock-standard as far as galleries go.
Enjoyed an afternoon meandering the Dianne Arbus exhibition at Heidi, loved how they tied in other photographers of her time. The history provided with the exhibit was fascinating. Also enjoyed visiting Heidi 1 and the Sidney Nolan paintings, the library was beautiful along with the plaques containing the history throughout. To top it off enjoyed a walk around the sculpture garden with magnificent old tress, the autumn leaves glistening in the wind
We only went to the sculpture gardens but they were absolutely lovely. Packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather. The car park here is not very big, so be mindful if youre bringing kids and bags and have to carry it all far. A wonderful day spent here!
This is a fantastic art gallery set in such beautiful grounds. The grounds are filled with sculptures that you come across around every turn and of course the famous corrugated iron cows grazing on the hill. There are 3 separate galleries in the grounds and a cafe which has great food. Be sure to allow enough time for a good wander around!
One of my favourite places. Whether you’re on a date, catching up with an old friend or on a picnic. Even those who aren’t into art will appreciate the sculpture gardens situated on the edge of the Yarra river. For those interested in both new and less new Australia art there’s the various wings to visit from the old, post modern to the cutting new. The cafe is pretty good with my only gripe being I was once given a cappuccino without the chocolate on it. When I questioned this I was told “that’s how we serve it here”. The rest of us would call that a flat white. More a quirk than a complaint. In short, I love Heide.
The surrounding bushland and parks are beautiful. You can look through the sculptures and gardens for free. The sculptures are varied and interesting in their natural surrounds.
This Museum has something for everyone. Broad range of modern art to see. Guided tour of Arthur Boyd exhibition was very well done - very informative.
Beautiful exhibition at the moment but was incredibly shocked and disappointed by the rude reception staff ‘Penny’. She needs to check her professionalism and her friendliness with customers. Other than the experience she gave us, the venue is striking and great work of phenomenal artists.
An amazing experience at the Diane Arbus exhibit today. The buildings are an incredible space to showcase a small collection of works. The history of the site complements the visual interest of the art works. The setting of the acres of parkland and pavilion type art galleries are like nothing I’ve seen before. It was my first time and whole experience feels like you’ve discovered a hidden sanctuary for Australian art. The experience was family friendly but should be enjoyed as a half to full day activity. Will return in the future.
