On July 15, the Australian Museum will once more be remixed by artists, DJs and scientists, turning its historic halls into an after-hours playground for grown-ups, robots and dinosaurs.
Robot or dinosaur? Pick a team on arrival and battle it out through a series of original games, performances and experiences happening in every nook and cranny of the Museum all night long.
Strictly adults only, Jurassic Lounge is an after-hours celebration pitching artificial intelligence against evolution, the man-made against the natural, and the future against the past.
Jurassic Lounge typically sells out in advance so be sure to book now. With prizes for best costume up for grabs, dress ups are welcome but not mandatory!
Saturday 15 July, 6:30pm – 10pm
Australian Museum, 1 William Street, Sydney
$25 in advance, $30 at the door (subject to availability)

The last Jurassic Lounge events sold out, so those who rocked up on the day never made it inside.
Five pop-up bars and two eateries will be open on the night, including our rooftop restaurant, No. 1 William.
Many Jurassic Loungers like to work the theme into their outfits, and you'll help score points for your team if you do, but there's no rule about it.
Join Australian Museum Events Volunteer Program and lend a hand at Jurassic Lounge and future events at the Museum.
They’re borderline compulsory!
Nope, they’re always welcome in the daytime, but Jurassic Lounge is strictly an 18+ event (there’s alcohol!).
