Sky and Earth Country
Discover the creatures of the night sky and bat cave
The Tyama exhibition has now closed at Melbourne Museum.
Tyama transports you to Victoria’s nocturnal worlds, immersing you in 360-degree responsive projections, breathtaking effects, and exquisite soundscapes.
Tyama: A deeper sense of knowing is an interactive museum experience like no other, giving you the chance to discover senses beyond human perception alongside the animals that use them.
Explore and play through six extraordinary digital environments, to bring untold stories to life.
This immersive experience allows you to see each environment from the perspectives of the animals themselves.
Tyama (CHAH-MUH) is the Keerray Woorroong language verb ‘to know’. It is about knowing, not just with our minds, but with our whole body. By listening closely with all our senses, we can embody these learnings and understand our place in the world.
Grounded in First Peoples knowledge, Tyama blends the physical and digital to create an unmissable immersive experience to reawaken your connection to the natural world.
These resources where published to support the exhibition experience allowing audiences to get to know the featured creatures, to embark on an adventure around the Melbourne Museum, and to meet the storytellers behind the exhibition.
