What's On

Laugh, learn, play and make. Join us for a big autumn holiday program at Melbourne Museum.

At our free family activity, Mega Tunnels, you can create a piece of paper tunnel to add to the wall along the Galleria. Open daily from 11am to 3pm, you can also enter a mini-tunnel to see how the work of Metro Tunnel’s massive tunnel borers is being done right under our feet.

Visit our latest family exhibition Mini Mega Model Museum, and book into our Mini Mystery Family Workshop where you can use digital technologies in our new Learning Lab to be shrunk down to mini size to help find lost objects and solve our museum mystery.

In the Meet the Museum Expert: Photography in collections workshops, you’ll hear about the specialised job that collection managers do at the museum, see some back-of-house areas, and try your hand at developing museum skills.

Finally, enjoy the free entertainment on the Plaza as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Join us for this outdoor public theatre extravaganza, featuring 5 Angry Men, Nube, $hantalle & Jerry, and the Collector.
