Jurassic Lounge

What a night! We went to the opening of the Australian Museum’s Jurassic Lounge last night, and I can assure you that we’ll be going back!


At 5.30 on Tuesdays for the month of February, the Museum becomes an over 18’s venue. For the price of admission you get in to all the regular exhibits, plus the wildlife photographer of the year, and a drink!


Some of the regular exhibits aren’t in a way that you’d normally view them though! The Bone Room was a silent dance party! (Think of a room full of people dancing in time to the same beat but you can’t hear what they’re dancing to until you put on the head phones that they are all wearing.)

We arrived about 7pm (owing to working hours) and the queue to get in was out the front door, though moving at a good pace. We decided to pay the extra $15 upon admission for wine & cheese and participate in the talk “Vampires through history” that was on. A very good decision on our part!

There were performances,


The ability to play with exhibits,


The whole Museum was open to you for exploration!



There was so much to see and do, and interact with, I’m just going to have to go again while it’s still on, and I recommend you do the same!

Have fun exploring! 😀
