If you’ve visited the Melbourne Museum lately you’d be forgiven for thinking it was being transformed into something reminiscent of a huge “Where the Wild Things Are” diorama. As it turns out, all the commotion has absolutely nothing to do with the realisation of a fantasical storybook wonderland. Rather, the preparations herald the arrival of the Museum’s next major touring exhibition, The Wonders of Ancient Mesopotamia. (Really though, just look at the exhibition’s branding visuals and tell me they aren’t derivative of the illustrations in Maurice Sendak’s fictional classic!).

In summary, from May 4 you can head to the Melbourne Museum and separate fact from fiction by having a squiz at over 170 ancient treasures from Mesopotamia, kindly loaned to our fair city by the British Museum.

WHEN: Now until 7 October, 10am-5pm
WHERE: Melbourne Museum, Carlton Gardens, Carlton
