Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book?

Most Jurassic Lounge events sell out in advance, so don’t be left for dead.

Five pop-up bars and two eateries will be open on the night, including our rooftop restaurant, No. 1 William.

Does everybody dress up?

It’s Halloween, so whether you’re ghoulish or glam, come dressed to scare if you dare and you could go home with cool prizes. Can’t get it sorted? Our make-up artists can apply last-minute slashes and gore, details on the night.

Join Australian Museum Events Volunteer Program and lend a hand at Jurassic Lounge and future events at the Museum.
