HOT: Jurassic Dinosaur Disco, Melbourne Museum, Nicholson St, Carlton

If you haven’t visited Jurassic World: The Exhibition or are keen to relive the memories then head down to Melbourne Museum’s after-dark event this August – the Jurassic Dinosaur Disco!

Dinosaur Disco Melbourne Museum

On Saturday 13 August and 20 August you can dress up, boogie to your favourite disco and dinosaur tunes and visit Jurassic World: The Exhibition at night.

We had a fantastic time on the dance floor – even my normally non-dancing, non-participatory kids surprised me by their disco fever!

As for the exhibition, as expected scaredy cat 5 year Lady AB was frightened out of her wits, whereas sanguine 3 year old Baby 2.0 was wide-eyed but not too scared. So whether the exhibition is suitable for your children is really up to you, it’s aimed at 5+ years.

The disco is open 6-8pm and exhibition sessions must be booked for 6-7pm. However, your actual entry time seems to be flexible if it’s not very busy. Exhibition entry is available every 15 minutes from 6:15pm.

Parking at Melbourne Musem is flat rate $7, though look out for Museum Victoria member specials. On our visit Museum Members received free parking with a validated ticket.

HOT Tips:

  • tickets available at the door but best to pre-book;
  • ticket includes disco, glow sticks and entry into Jurassic World: The Exhibition;
  • parking is easiest at Melbourne Museum, $7 flat rate;
  • a small cafe/kiosk is open with snacks;
  • if you’re wondering where we got our awesome dinosaur and dragon/pterodactyl dress ups, there were borrowed from our local toy library!
