Bring T-Rex and Stegosaurus into the future with sci-fi celebration, Jurassic Lounge: 2099

While still honouring the Age of Reptiles, this year’s after-hours party at the Australian Museum is focused on the future. There’s virtual reality experiences, performances, sci-fi storytelling and workshops tackling the challenges of our age. Take charge of our environmental future and learn how to repurpose plastic, or ride a wormhole and experience a new century.

If you foresee partying in your future, learn some new moves at the group dance lesson or work on your own impromptu performance during the silent disco and DJ sets. Tuckered out after all that grooving? Settle in for storytime with theatrical renditions of futuristic tales from sci-fi novelist Isaac Asimov.

There’s two eateries and five pop-up bars to keep the level of partying at turn of the century intensity. You can buy tickets online or at the door for this adults only experience.
