Tickets for ‘Treasures of the Natural World’ are now on sale.
In the series Another exhibition that was supposed to be here in 2020, Melbourne will soon welcome and be home to ‘Treasures of the Natural World’, which will open at the Melbourne Museum in June 2021.
As one of the world’s most visited museums, London’s Natural History Museum has collected and attained some of the world’s biggest, oldest and most fascinating treasures. Now, for the first time in Australia, the magic held within its walls will be on show for all Melburnians to see with more than 200 extremely rare, unique and marvelous artefacts making the trip Down Under.
Every item and object making the journey has a story to tell and this exhibition will do just that. From Charles Darwin’s personal collection that inspired his theory of evolution to a piece of a Martian meteorite found way back in 1911, the ‘Treasures of the Natural’ world exhibition will fascinate and inspire all who visit.
Although the exhibition will be produced by the Natural History Museum, the Melbourne Museum iteration will include First Peoples’ narratives so as to help us gain a better understanding of the complicated history that some of these objects have.
‘Treasures of the Natural World’ at the Melbourne Museum opens on 12 June 2021. Tickets for adults start at $29.
