Extraordinary treasures from London’s Natural History Museum are coming to Melbourne

UPDATE: Treasures of the Natural World has been postponed. We'll update you ASAP with more details when we get them.

Can’t make the trek to London to see the city’s most impressive museum? Don’t stress. Some of the Natural History Museum’s oldest, rarest and strangest items are in Melbourne from May 2020. 

Treasures of the Natural World features 200+ items from the Natural History Museum’s enormous (and world-famous) collection. Every item holds some kind of significance within our understanding of the natural world. 

There are objects from the personal collection of Charles Darwin, a 200 million-year-old Ichthyosaurus fossil, and a rare Martian meteorite that fell to Earth in 1911 (a cool 11 million years after it was blasted into space). Plenty more treasures will be announced in the lead-up the exhibition opening, so stay tuned – you won’t want to miss seeing these IRL. 

Treasures of the Natural World opens at Melbourne Museum on May 22. Tickets are on sale right now.
