Queensland Museum Hits The Streets
Visit the museum without actually visiting the museum.
From the remains of ancient creatures to objects that have travelled far, far beyond the earth, plenty of interesting items grace the Queensland Museum's walls. Fancy getting a peek, but can't make it to the Cultural Centre site? Eager to peruse its fascinating wares, but can't dedicate a whole afternoon to the task? That's where the museum's one-day roving pop-up comes in.
From 10am–3pm on Friday, August 9, Queensland Museum Hits The Streets will roam around the inner-city, showcasing items from its natural and social history collections, and featuring a team of scientists, curators and other experts on hand to have an informative chat. It'll set up shop in 20-minute bursts, letting you enjoy a mini visit to the museum in a few unlikely places. And if you're wondering why, it's in honour of National Science Week, which starts the next day.
If you'll be in the CBD, you can catch the event at the Edward Street end of the Queen Street Mall, before it makes its next stop at the George Street end. After lunch, it'll head over to South Bank, popping up near the water playground, then near Streets Beach, and finally at the Cultural Centre Forecourt.
