20th Birthday Celebration

MoB is turning 20 and you’re invited to celebrate with us!

Join us on Saturday 21 October to help celebrate all things MoB! Enjoy tours, free workshops, talks, activities for the whole family and the chance to win some very special MoB prizes.

Drop into the studio in the morning to make an Impossible Pot, see a very special traditional performance from Nunukul Yuggera, meet the MoB Curators and Collections team to find out how we bring exhibitions to life and stay on for a free object handling workshop where you can get your hands on real museum pieces.
