SCIENCE AND LIFE ...

About


A major exhibition development is underway in the Science and Life Gallery at Melbourne Museum. The exhibitions share the theme of change – changing landscapes, changing life forms and changing climates.

Curators research and develop the content of the exhibitions and work closely with a larger team.  This blog will provide a sneak peak behind the scenes as the exhibitions begin to take shape. Join in the discussion, ask questions and make comments.

Dinosaur Walk is the first of four new exhibitions and is due to open in April 2009.
