Since the University of Melbourne’s inception in 1853, thousands of beautiful, rare, bizarre, and invaluable pieces have been collected. Art and artefacts, curious pieces from the earliest scientific laboratories, important historical items, and specimens from exotic expeditions, are carefully catalogued, stored, and treasured. Curiosity features a selection of more than 100 items from fields as diverse as art, history, music, medicine, science, and zoology. Items include Ned Kelly’s death mask, obsolete medical tools and educational devices, extinct birds, etchings by Rembrandt and Tiepolo, and letters by Tchaikovsky and Thomas Hardy.
We look forward to letting you know our exciting 2015 program in the new year and remind you that we will be closed for summer holidays from Wednesday 24 December, reopening on Tuesday 6 January 2015.
