Why Models Work - The History Edition

Presented by Melbourne Museum

Museums Victoria Lectures continue! In celebration of our newest exhibition, Mini Mega Model Museum, we're 'Zoom'ing in on the fascinating world of models.

This series of Zoom-hosted live lectures features curators, collection managers and conservators presenting detailed studies of models in the exhibition. Each lecture explores the models in more detail from the experts who care for them and use them in their work.

Register online to receive your Zoom invite and link to a virtual walk-through experience of the Mini Mega Model Museum exhibition.
