For one night only the Melbourne Museum hosted SmartBar, a pop-up bar that mixed drinks and tunes along with a dose of science, history, taxidermy and a dissection. In an attempt to attract a different crowd, this event was adults only and it was a hit. In fact they sold out the event and I wouldn’t be surprised if they do it more regularly!
Highlights for me were the stuffed animals and the minerals. There was a live demo too! So with champagne in hand, I watched a large bird being stuffed. (Can’t say that everyday can you?!) Pretty amazing process with not a trace of blood -thank goodness.
