Downloads, activities & DIY

Even when our doors are closed, there’s so much to discover at the Museum.

Bring some #MirkaMagic home with the MIRKA Manifesto, full of questions and activities that will get you thinking about Mirka Mora’s art, life and inspiring worldview. Zone out as you colour in free MIRKA colouring pages – download them here and here. Little ones (and the young at heart!) will be delighted by these Mirka-inspired paper dolls! And if you happen to live in the City of Port Phillip, you can explore the neighbourhood through Mirka’s eyes with our Mirka’s St Kilda: Self-Guided Walk.

Meanwhile, you can explore our permanent galleries in 360° with our Virtual Museum Tour, or get crafty with DIY projects – why not make your own Museum or dive into your family story with our Tree of Hope project?

Observe the Jewish year with our holiday projects: make a paper Seder plate for Pesach, craft a Rosh Hashanah card, count down to Chanukah and construct a Tzedakah box for Yom Kippur.

Things to watch & listen to

Watch a charming documentary from 1986 that sees Mirka Mora head into the Australian wilderness: Mirka’s Palace of Dreams.

Gain a deeper understanding of MIRKA from someone who knew her best – listen to A Lap of Caulfield Park for an interview with William Mora, gallerist and Mirka Mora’s son.

Then, learn about one of Mirka’s enduring obsessions as Graeme Horne gives a lecture on antique dolls in Strange Bedfellows.

Finally, hear from ANZ Bank CEO Shayne Elliott in Breakfast with the Museum, part of our inspired leadership series.
