New Year's Eve

Sat 31 Dec 2016
05:00 - 08:30pm

Grab the kids and come along for some good old fashioned family fun at our special New Year’s Eve event.

The museum front lawn will be full of fun things to see, make and do!

Inside you'll be able to explore the human body in our interactive exhibition Humanoid Discovery, experience the drama of the BHP sound and light show and investigate science in Supernova.

Bring a picnic to enjoy on our lawn before you wander over to the harbour for the 9pm fireworks.
