The Museums are closed but you can explore from home
Although Melbourne's beloved museums have closed in a large scale effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Victoria, the clever team at Museums Victoria have swiftly adapted. Melburnians can explore their favourite Melbourne Museums virtually by tuning in to Museum at Home.

Museum at Home is Museum Victoria's brand new digital initiative, inviting museum fans far and wide to connect, explore and learn from Scienceworks, the Melbourne Museum and the Immigration Museum every day.

"Museums play a vital role in our community, helping us to understand and connect with the world around us, and during these unprecedented and challenging times of physical distancing and self-isolation, it is more important than ever to find new ways to come together," said Museums Victoria CEO & Director Lynley Crosswell.

The Museum at Home website invites you to:

Virtually explore the Melbourne Museum's galleries.
Tune in to Melbourne comedian's The Listies LOLtastic tour of Melbourne Museum.
Listen to The Fact Detectives: Kinderling Kids Radio audio tour, which will take you on a mission to find out exciting facts from Museum experts.
Delve deeper into stories of human experience from the Immigration Museum.
Get your STEM fix from Scienceworks.

While the site is already live and packed full of education information, more content will be uploaded in the days and weeks to follow including Q&As with experts, live streaming, virtual events and more.
