Under normal circumstances you wouldn’t want a night out to culminate in a discussion about the neurological side effects of syphilis.
Phobia-inducing spiders, mind games and straightjackets probably aren’t high up on your hit list either.
Forgo expectations this winter and engage your inner nerd at Melbourne’s most fascinating pop-up watering hole. Get up close and personal with some of the Melbourne Museum’s quirkiest collections and most shocking stories, sans the usual distractions of strollers or Velcro fanny packs.
Sip, swill and stimulate your mind as you enter a labyrinth taking you deep inside the most complex regions of the human brain. DJ Andre McClelland will laying down mind, brain and eye-related tunes, while the night’s activities could range from interpreting visual representations of dreams and dementia to voluntary admission into an isolation cell.
It’s the Melbourne Museum, but not as you know it.
