What's On

We like books. You like books. Melbourne has always loved books!

Across the 19th Century Melbourne's own Cole's Book Arcade was the biggest bookstore in the world, and one of the most popular children's books was E.W Cole's Funny Picture Book.

Every Sunday in Term 1 guests can drop in and add to Melbourne Museum's very own giant funny picture book. 

You are invited to write, draw or pen a poem – from your favourite joke to your silliest made-up character, anything funny goes!

Suitable for ages 5 to 12 years. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
