Treasures of the Natural World

December 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am - January 16, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

The world’s biggest, rarest, oldest and most fascinating treasures are landing at Melbourne Museum, all the way from London, for the whole family to enjoy. Journey through the natural world and marvel at the objects that changed the course of scientific history.

For the first time in Australia, don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to

discover new worlds, and experience the magic of a visit to the Natural History Museum.

From the unique or extremely rare to the mysterious and astonishing, get up close and personal with over 200 artefacts whose colourful stories unlock the mysteries of life. With treasures such as Charles Darwin’s personal collection that inspired his theory of evolution, and a 200 million-year-old Ichthyosaurus fossil found by English fossil collector Mary Anning when she was just 11 years old, you’ll be inspired to see the world—our biggest treasure—in a completely different light.

Treasures of the Natural World is produced and curated by the Natural History Museum, London. Melbourne Museum’s interpretation of the exhibition will be enriched by the addition of First Peoples’ narratives, which represents an important step in acknowledging the complex history of some of these objects and respecting the deep relationship First Peoples have with the natural world.
