Heide Museum of Modern Art began life in 1934 as the home of John and Sunday Reed and has since evolved into one of Australia's most important cultural institutions. Heide, as it is affectionately known, has built a national reputation based upon the vision of the Reeds and their role in the development and promotion of modern art in Australia. Inspired by the Reeds' nurturing of the young artists of their generation, Heide continues to support the contemporary art of today through its collection and exhibition program.Make Heide Museum of Modern Art a part of your Bulleen vacation plans using our Bulleen trip maker app .

Heide Museum of Modern Art Reviews
We come from small island Singapore and definitely love the open space this property has. The scuptures, trees and grass are the highlight =D more »
The manager is unfriendly, applies some weird rationale as to whether they seat you in the cafe or not. I enquired what cheesecakes they had, the manager said “berry, that’s all” despite the fact ther... more »
I paid $36 (me, partner and 6yr old) to get into the gallery (the cost of which hardly promotes notions of 'art' being accessible to everyone) and was very much looking forward to looking at Jenny Wat... more »
My favourite place in Melbourne. Very relaxing walking around the sculpture garden and my children love the climbing tree. I take all our visitors here and have a meal at the cafe if we have time. I love the shop and have bought many things there. In fact my Christmas list is purely gifts from Heide plus an annual membership. One note of warning: Be ware of the snakes, especially if you wander down towards the river.
Museum has average pieces for a good price. Sculpture garden is beautiful, free and large. Don't touch any sculptures outside apart from the box room. A long drive from Melbourne CBD but worth it. Bring a picnic, comfy shoes and a jacket.
A great space architecturally and great place to go if you like modern art and the surrounding gardens, which are full of sculptures. My only qualm is the over the top pretentious and rude staff that we sadly encountered. The ladies at the till at the entrance were however very nice and welcoming. Just a shame the others weren't!
A beautiful calm treasure in the midst of busyness. Would certainly be a great spot for a wedding... those wonderful old trees and the masses of violets. Great cafe and the most fantastic shop.
Worth going for the architecture alone. The way they've preserved and presented the history of John and Sunday Reed is fantastic
