Time Out says

Big things come in small packages as Melbourne Museum goes miniature

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be like Alice and eat something to become huge, or drink something to become tiny? What would the world look like to a giant? What does it look like to a cat? 

You can find out at Melbourne Museum's Mini Mega Model Museum, which plays with scale in more than 300 objects displayed in tiny and oversized galleries. There are model specimens to examine in the Zoomological Laboratory, hyper-realistic wax food in the life-sized cafeteria to play with and a fully furnished mini-mansion to pore over. The mini-mansion took more than 40 years to create, and museum visitors could spend hours appreciating every tiny detail. 

Kids can learn about model making and try their hand during the Mini Mega Makers Workshop. And for some very large-scale critters, have a stroll through the museum's Dinosaur Walk. 

UPDATE 22/06/2020: In line with current restriction levels, a maximum of 20 people will be allowed in each of Melbourne Museum's spaces, and the one person per four square metres rule will apply. In addition to managing capacity, the museum will also have in place other physical distancing, hygiene and sanitisation measures to help protect the safety of all visitors, staff and volunteers.
