The Australian Museum is staying up past its bedtime to present a series of fascinating night-time events.

Each Wednesday from January 24 until March 14, experts, guests and staff will provide an interactive, adult-only experience for the super curious.

This first Wednesday, named We Stand Strong, hones in on important questions about Australian identity, protest and resilience. The session will be commandeered by the museum's First Nation staff, and will include deadly-designed jewellery workshops, a live DJ playing 'decolonisation beats' and a 'Change the Date' virtual reality rap video.

Each Wednesday has a provocative theme, such as Anti-Valentine's Day which includes 'speed-hating', Voodoo doll-making workshops and animal heart dissections; and Another View (held in conjunction with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras), with cabaret performances, tours of the museum from an LGBTQI perspective and live art. For the environmentally minded, there's also Turning the Tide, which introduces experts on marine life and a virtual reality guide to coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef.
