I went to Melbourne Museum with my niece the day after her hen party. Thankfully we weren’t too hungover! Just tired.
The museum is quite large, we went around it all in about 2 and a half hours. If you like to stop and read everything and do every activity, it could easily take you a few hours longer.
We started off going through the section that had rocks, meteors, and other such things. The was a section on the development of the earth and the universe in Melbourne.
Next, we went into the section that had dinosaurs, sea life, and bugs. There were real spiders, beetles, and ants you could look at. As well as displays of different insects at different points in their life cycle. I didn’t take a photo of this as it freaked me out a little. There was also a massive section on wild animals with other 600 types of animals.
After that, we went into the section that taught you all about World War 1 and the impact it had on Australians. There were stories of real people you could read, listen to or see things that belong to them. It was a bit emotional at times when you read about how people lost their loved ones.
The last two sections were all about Melbourne and the story of Aboriginal Victoria.
It made for an interesting day out and I’m so glad we got to visit!
