Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention Exhibition @ Scienceworks

Event: -
Over the past few years, Melbourne has hosted some blockbuster exhibitions, for example Tim Burton: The Exhibition in 2010 and Art of the Brick in 2012, and this year's blockbuster exhibition looks to be Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention Exhibition. This exhibition will be held at Scienceworks from May 19th, 2012. This is the first time this exhibition has been displayed outside the UK.

The name of the exhibition refers to the 2010 BBC One Wallace and Gromit spin-off 'Wallace and Gromit's World of Invention'. Wallace, a self proclaimed genius, who has a keen interest in all things inventions and contraptions (sometimes they work, most of the time, they don't), was the perfect host for the children's science show series, which lasted only six episodes.



Within the series, Wallace and Gromit would celebrate other inventors, but this interactive touring exhibition celebrates Wallace's own inspiring inventions; for example the Karaoke Disco Shower, The Thinking Cap, Telly-scope II, the Blend-o-matic, Chocolate Teapot, the Ice Hot Water Bottle and many other curious inventions.





Most of the exhibits are interactive and will hopefully inspire a new generation of inventors. There will be a Creative Station set up, so all visitors to the exhibition can share their own ideas as well. Supported by the IP Australia, children will also learn about copyright, registered design and trademarks.



In addition to the World of Invention component of the exhibition, there will also be film sets and props on display from the award winning Wallace & Gromit short films and feature films.

This family exhibition also has an education program.

Tickets will be on sale for this anticipated event in April 2012.

It will be open daily until November 11th, 2012.

Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention Exhibition is expected to head to Sydney in December 2012.
