Melbourne Museum SmartBar giveaway

MVI 1311 PR Images A44 540x540 Melbourne Museum SmartBar giveaway

If you think Melbourne Museum is a destination only for the pram-pushing set, think again.

For one night only on Thursday 1 March, Melbourne Museum is hosting SmartBar a summer pop-up bar that presents drinks and DJ tunes along with a dose of science and history, taxidermy and a dissection. Dazzle your friends with your wealth of knowledge, browse the Science and Life gallery exhibits after hours without tripping over toddlers or just enjoy a bar experience that’s a little bit different.

  68. Good idea. Hope the pieces come together (or apart for dissection) and it all works well …

    Posted by James | February 26, 2012, 8:27 am
  69. I adore this idea, and strongly believe they should make it a permanent fixture. Imagine if it were every Thursday night, or if they created a “Smart Bar” popup somewhere central like in the QV or Arts Centre foreground – it’s the perfect tone & concept for Melbourne to really get its teeth into.
