Saturday Sessions at Melbourne Museum
This month, Saturday Sessions will feature a DJ set by Natalie Ex. Her sets fuse together a range of genres, such as disco, new wave, yacht rock, city pop, house and garage. While you listen to music, check out the food and cocktail menu, inspired by native ingredients.
Step into the digital experience, River Connections, a journey into the unique environment of the Murray River. This five-minute, infinity projection experience explores how life is connected in this river environment.
Explore the museum after dark, and discover the newest exhibition, Naadohbii: To Draw Water. This exhibition brings together over 20 contemporary First Peoples artists from Australia, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Turtle Island (Canada). Explore the solidarity between First Peoples nations around environment, political and cultural connections, and relationships with water.
Then, check out Tyama. In this immersive experience, you’ll journey around Victoria’s natural, nocturnal world. See large-scale multimedia projections, and listen to stories inspired by First Peoples knowledge.
Have a bit of fun at Bricktionary: The Ultimate A-Z of Lego. See over 150 LEGO models, and try and create something wonderful yourself.
Take a step back in time and come face-to-face with the world’s most complete triceratops fossil. In Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs, you’ll learn all about the creatures of the Cretaceous period, and the landscapes that make up this forgotten world.
You will need to make a booking for both Tyama and Bricktionary.
