What's On

Museum Members can experience Melbourne Museum’s latest major exhibition, Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers before Melbourne Museum opens to the general public.

Come face-to-face with large-scale critters at our exclusive Museum Members preview. We've arranged some very special (oversized) critters to entertain and get you and your family excited to visit our latest exhibition.
Meet a Bombardier Beetle, visit the bug labs and see living bug specimens from Museums Victoria’s own collection. Dig deep into cutting edge science to uncover the adaptive genius of bugs and discover how humans are using bugs as inspiration for new technologies. Also, our pop-up café will be open so that you can get your caffeine buzz before entering the exhibition!

Why not stick around and make a day of it by visiting our Bugs Alive! exhibition after 10am to see some of our live specimens like spiders, snails and other invertebrates!
