What's On

Postponed

In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, work required on many programs, exhibitions and events at Museums Victoria has been disrupted, preventing us from being able to present Treasures of the Natural World to you in 2020. 

What to do if you had purchased tickets

Treasures has been postponed—but it hasn’t been cancelled. We will be bringing it back to Melbourne Museum in 2021, so keep an eye on our website and social channels for more information.

All tickets holders to Treasures of the Natural World have three options in relation to their tickets.

You can choose to:

  1. Swap your ticket for a new date once the exhibition has been rescheduled
  2. Request a refund for your ticket
  3. If you are looking for ways to support your museum during this time, you can opt to donate your ticket. This will assist us in continuing our important role of helping our community to understand and connect with the world around us, and support care of the State Collection.

We understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for so many people in the community and we hope these options provide everyone with a choice that they’re comfortable with.

How to take up your preferred option

Please email Museums Victoria’s Bookings & Enquiries at: [email protected] 

We thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to seeing you when our doors reopen.
