University of Melbourne Open Day

The University’s annual Open Day, to be held on Sunday 19 August, will once again provide the opportunity for visitors to explore many of the museums and collections on the Parkville campus.

Highlights will include the opportunity to visit the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology, the Tiegs Zoology Museum, the University of Melbourne Herbarium and the recently refurbished Old Quad.

Also on offer will be a wide range of exhibitions, including Horizon lines: The ambitions of a print collection in the Noel Shaw Gallery, Baillieu Library, and interactive music exhibitions and music-related displays at the Grainger Museum. Science Gallery Melbourne, part of a global network of galleries dedicated to igniting creativity in young people where science and art collide, will also be hosting pop-up programs all day as part of the DISPOSABLE exhibition.

See the Open Day website for full details.
