at the Australian Museum
by Newtown Grafitti
(Sydney Australia )
Australian Museum entrance, opposite Hyde Park
On Tuesday evenings the pretentiously titled but very interesting Australian Museum in Sydney,
largely funded by the New South Wales state government, becomes Jurassic Lounge.
Activities include artists, musicians, sometimes a lecture by a well-known scientist.
A limited range of food and beverages is available and, for a $15 entrance fee, visitors can roam the halls, glass of wine in hand.
Taking photographs is encouraged, and visitors can post them on the museum's facebook wall, www.facebook.com/australianmuseum
