Ideal place to visit whatever the weather as it's essentially two visits which could be done together or individually. We visited twice. On the first visit, on a sweltering hot day, we did the indoor ... more »
WARNING!!!!! Please be aware that if you don't see the signs and mistakenly take the wrong exit when you are leaving the gallery, you will receive considerable damage to your tyres. My 76 year old mother found this out today when she went the wrong way out and drove across the metal spikes that Heide have cruelly placed for people doing the wrong thing even if mistakenly so. All four tyres we're ripped to shreds and had to be towed straight to Bob Jane's. $800 for new tyres, the towing cost, and $100 at the bastard gallery! Wow expensive bloody day! Never again!!!

Melbourne gets art, knows it better than Sydney does. Nowhere is this more obvious than at Heide - once home to rich-beyond-measure patrons of the arts John and Sunday Reed. They of open relationship fame - she was getting it on with Sidney Nolan when the artist painted his Ned Kelly series. The three buildings and sculpture garden have become the celebrated "ruin in the landscape" the owners wanted. Worth a visit. On the downside: Public art should be for free. Disappointed the museum wasn't open Christmas Eve. (Thursday)
I have to say I was not impressed and was expecting a bit more. There are certainly some interesting exhibitions and the grounds are lovely, especially the vegetable garden, but I also agree that the price of entry is too high - $18 is only $2 more than Mona which is world famous, huge, and contains 30 million worth of art -- you also get free entry if you are Tasmanian. Also, one of the staff was talking so loudly to her mate the whole time I was in the museum which is pretty rude and distracting. Cafe Vue has nice a nice section, and my soup tasted great, but it was a bit cool.
Am amazing museum with a nice garden, good on a sunny day for a picnic
Very nice day out. Great exhibition spaces, fantastic grounds and sculptures and wonderful historic farm house. Kids' detective activities highly recommended.
