free interesting activity near melbourne gaol for teenagers

Hi

I am taking a school group of yr 7 and 8 students to melbourne gaol and have 1 hour to spare in the morning before we go. I was wondering what free activity or interesting attraction we might be able to do in that time near the melbourne gaol. I know there are the gardens near by. Is there anything inside the gardens that might work?

Thanks

Melbourne Museum is a 10 minute walk, free entry for children and I'm pretty sure teachers get in for free.

There is a very good playground outside the museum as well.

The Museum is a great idea. There's also the Gold Rush Museum at the Old Treasury Building. But for both, I'd check and see if you need to book your group in.

Hello

The State Library has an interesting exhibition in the upper galleries of the reading room. There is also a set of the Kelly armour.

Cheers
