Have you ever wondered what it's like to roam the museum after dark when the lights are out and the huge crowds have dissipated? Ever watched Night at the Museum and wished you could explore the darkened corridors of the museum in a similar experience?

Then I've got something for you to get excited about.
Jurassic Lounge at the Australian Museum- an experience like nothing you've ever encountered before

The Australian Museum is opening up its doors every Tuesday night from 5.30pm to 9.30pm starting from the 28th of August for you to explore art, enjoy live music and performances all in the backdrop of the museum grounds. The Jurassic Lounge has had a string of successes from previous seasons and they're now back for another run until the 30th of October.

Can't quite wrap your head around what this event is all about?

Imagine museum artifacts and displays under low lighting combined with a live band or two in the corner, an art workshop in the next room and a live performance in the foyer. It's like a big playground for adults to mingle in the museum in a laidback, cool and artsy atmosphere (this is an over 18 event).

Last year's line ups included a burlesque show, a silent disco, a live painting, a photobooth, a chance to get up close and personal with the museum pets (a snake and stick insect) and a whole bunch of other cool stuff.

The line up for this season's Jurassic Lounge include a Rave Cave, sneak peeks of programs from Sydney's Fringe Festival and Sydney Underground Film Festival plus a carefully curated list of iconic and emerging Sydney artists and performers.

Tickets are priced at $14 per adult and cover entry to the Deep Oceans exhibition.
