Have you been to the Melbourne Museum lately? If you haven't, make sure you add Victoria's state museum of natural and cultural history to your list of places to visit in the summer school holidays.

Melbourne Museum


Melbourne Museum, located in Carlton Gardens adjacent to the stunning Royal Exhibition Building, is jam packed with interesting facts, interactive displays and educational fun to entertain your kids.

This summer, Melbourne Museum will host a HOOT-tastic program of owl related holiday adventures and activities. The educational feathered fun will incur no extra costs, because the activities are incorporated within your museum entry fee. The following program will run from 26 December 2015 until 26 January 2016.
