Melbourne Museum is the only venue to offer activities especially for children and their families as part of White Night Melbourne, a city-wide celebration of art and culture, on Saturday 23 February.
"From 6pm to 10pm, 'A Night at the Museum' will bring Melbourne Museum alive with dinosaur fever," says the museum's Manager of Education and Community Programs, Georgie Meyer.
Programming on the evening will include a huge range of dinosaur-themed activities for the whole family, such as dinosaur dress-ups, roaming dino puppets, insect and reptile handling, a dinosaur picnic, a spooky torchlight dinosaur hunt (BYO torch) and performances of the Kulin creation story, Waa and the Seven Sisters.
"At Melbourne Museum, normal admission applies, but we are encouraging visitors to book tickets in advance," says Meyer. "The museum's car park will also be open all night, allowing visitors to park in Carlton and walk into the CBD for the other White Night Melbourne events."
White Night began in 2002 in Paris as an initiative to make art and culture accessible to large audiences in public spaces. Since then, the concept has grown enormously and has been adopted by 23 cities across 18 countries, inspiring millions over the world to rediscover their cities.
