Slip into the shadows and embrace the dark side, when Melbourne Museum launches its new immersive digital exhibition, Tyama: A Deeper Sense of Knowing. Taking its name from the Keerray Woorroong language verb 'to know', it's a captivating glimpse into First Peoples practices of embodied learning, storytelling and connection to nature.

Launching Friday, July 22, the exhibition invites you to explore Victoria's vibrant nocturnal world via large-scale projections, soundscapes, striking imagery and a collection of artefacts. Interactive technology is fused with powerful storytelling to capture and unpack ideas around our connection to the natural world.

Created in conjunction with Keerray Woorroong citizens Yoolongteeyt Dr Vicki Couzens and Yaraan Bundle, Tyama aims to immerse and transport you as you wander through its spaces, activating swirling dreamtime lightscapes, flitting amongst blooming nocturnal flowers and using sound to 'see' like a bat. You'll switch perspectives with flora and fauna, and gain new insight into our extraordinary world.
