School Holiday Activities


Where will your lively adventure at Melbourne Museum lead you these summer holidays?

Come and Give a Hoot and explore the amazing owls and frogmouths of Victoria with a range of family activities and experiences. Bring your binoculars as we seek out species from Australia, Eurasia and North America in the Night Bird Watch tour through the Forest Gallery and Wild Exhibit. Sketch our beautiful specimens in our You Can Call Me Owl drawing sessions, whilst discovering the incredible characteristics of owls and nightjars that make them such successful nocturnal birds of prey. Not allowed to stay up after dark? No problem, visit our activity rooms for a summer night backyard experience to see and hear some of the creatures that are active while you sleep in our Night Space activity.

Stop for lunch at our café or bring your own picnic and relax in the picturesque surrounds of Carlton Gardens, then experience the return of the force in stunning IMAX 3D, the only place to really experience this massively anticipated blockbuster that is Stars Wars: The Force Awakens 3D! Stay tuned to the IMAX website to see which documentary will be screening for the day.

Make your way through the Museum and see how much of the collection you’ve really seen; with tens of thousands of collection items on display at one time, a visit to Melbourne Museum always reveals something new.
