More than just a party, Nocturnal is the transformation of the museum into an adult playground.
Dotted with open bars, great food, roving entertainment and opportunities to explore big ideas across collections, cultures and time, Nocturnal is an after-hours party where you are invited for exclusive night time access to permanent galleries, expert talks with curators and scientists, as well as back of house collections displays.
Brian Nankervis and The RocKwiz Orkestra will pay tribute to the songs and artists featured in the fabulous exhibition, Revolutions: Records and Rebels. Featuring special guests and the Mighty RocKwiz Orkestra, the show will be full of revolutionary hits and Kwiz questions from 1966 to 1970. All this late ‘60s goop will be held together by the incomparable Brian Nankervis.
As an added extra you can also visit the smash hit Revolutions: Records and Rebels exhibition at Melbourne Museum.
This event is general admission, with limited seating available. If you require a seated position or have any questions regarding venue accessibility, please contact our team at [email protected] or 13 11 02.
