Brisbanites, it's time for a night at the museum. It's time for several, actually. You won't find Ben Stiller roaming the halls here; however, Queensland Museum will be filled with almost a century of Mouse House magic, all thanks to spectacular exhibition Disney: The Magic of Animation.

Clearly, these after-hours evenings will still feel rather adventurous — and, if you're a big Disney animation fan, dazzling as well. Queensland Museum has held these types of events before for past exhibitions, and just in general, but pairing it with more than 500 original sketches and artworks from Disney's beloved animated flicks takes things up several notches.

While you're being the South Bank spot's guest at Disney: The Magic of Animation After Dark — which is completely adults-only — you'll walk, talk, drink take a tour of the exhibition and party while surrounded by all those Disney treasures. There'll be live tunes, too, and the rest of QM will be open as well, so expect to check out SparkLab and Sciencentre's wonders, and even meet native wombats, crocodiles and birds.

A word of warning: these shindigs often sell out even when everything from Steamboat Willie — the first talkie to feature Mickey Mouse — through to last year's Raya and the Last Dragon aren't involved. So, you'll want to nab a $40 ticket quickly (and note that that price doesn't include food and drinks).

Disney: The Magic of Animation After Dark takes place from 5.30–8.30pm on Friday, June 24; Friday, August 5; Friday, September 2; Saturday, October 29; Friday, December 2; and Thursday, January 19.
