Melbourne Museum is running monthly adults-only nights

If the last time you visited Melbourne Museum was on a school trip to see the hall of taxidermy animals, you're definitely long overdue for a return. Luckily, the museum is kicking off Nocturnal, an adults-only event series.

Nocturnal will transform the museum into an after-hours adult playground on the first Friday of every month. Punters will have access to the museum long after the last school group have left the building and can expect a lounge bar serving drinks and bar snacks. The event's crowning glory is the stage in front of the Forest Gallery where Melbourne's best music acts will perform monthly.

The event will also run expert demonstrations, talks from the museum's curators, exclusive viewings of collection items and roving entertainment.  

Venue name: Melbourne Museum
Address: 11 Nicholson St
