Unlocking the Vault

National Science Week Event 

From the labs and collection stores to the gallery floors; meet our Scientists and Collection Managers as they bring out specimens from the ‘vault’.

View the Museum specimen collection up close; including fossils, rare and unique animal specimens, objects collected over 150 years ago, and some just collected last week.

Set in the Discovery Centre on Level 3, chat one-on-one with our Scientists and Collection Managers as they share ideas and stories and excite your curiosity for discovery. You will also have the opportunity to experience museum practices such as fossil preparation, collection techniques, data recording and specimen preservation.

No bookings required, just bring your curiosity and make your way to the Discovery Centre on Level 3 between 10am and 12pm or 1pm and 3pm.
