Going back to Magic Land

Last week we took the kids into the city to visit GoMA (Gallery of Modern Art)


It was a fantastic school holiday activity!

The exhibitions at the moment are amazing and we fell in love with 'We miss you magic land'






We loved the interactive part

We also loved the Yayoi Kusama exhibition!!




this room, may have been my favourite!! I mean, whats not to love????? red and white polka dots, yes please!

And the Obliteration room.... this room started out as a completely white room, with everything in it white. As you enter you are given a sheet of stickers...and you can stick them ANYWHERE (within the room)


 a little bit of help from her tall daddy...





What a totally cool idea!

And then we had a look 'heavily guarded' giant wooden rainbow.

I was so excited to do a little blogger spotting at GoMA and decided to be brave and go and say hello to the lovely Tamar and her beautiful girls. I have followed Tamar's blog for quite some time and talk via twitter sometimes. I really admire her amazing strength through the journey she is taking at the moment and was so lucky to meet her in person.

We then wandered through the State Library and found free crafting activities for the kids
Making a robot....

we finished it off with lunch in the South Bank parklands and a swim....

If you live in these parts, make sure you go and check out the exhibitions they run until early March 2012 and are well worth visiting!!!

And there's a double meaning to my title.. because this time a year ago our beautiful city was flooded and it was in a way going back to the place we find so magical and beautiful!

What are you doing for school holiday fun??

Love these pics - what a fun day. And I went to the Yayoi Kusama 'dotty' exhibition went it was here in Wellington about 18 months ago - I thought I recognised some of the rooms you were in but definitely some new ones there too!

Oh wow - that place looks awesome and I love the idea and look of the sticker room! We are having a different kind of holiday with trying to paint the house around doing things with the kids. Off to Auckland next week for fun. xoxo

We took the kids there on Monday - which was pretty hectic cause the Disney Show was also on & there were mass amounts of kids everywhere. I know what you mean about the rainbow. All my little ones wanted to do was crawl through it & we had to just about crash tackle our son away, which resulted in being tailed by security until we were clear of the exhibition.
