Designing 007

Posted by


Melbourne Museum is about to be transformed into a network of lairs, super-gadgetry, glamour and villainy. It’s all part of the Designing 007 exhibition, which reflects on 50 years of films that have shaped the name of Bond, James Bond.

It’s only the third time the exhibition has been shown worldwide; having already toured in Toronto and Shanghai. Melbourne will mark its only pit-stop in Australasia. Featuring original storyboards, music, artwork, stunning Hollywood fashion and weaponry, visitors can gain insight into the life of a secret agent as they weave their way through themed rooms.

According to Dr Patrick Greene (CEO of Museum Victoria), there’s one thing blokes keep asking about the display. His answer? “Yes, the car is coming,” — referring, of course, to the original 1969 Aston Martin DBS from the film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. In case you weren’t aware, this car was made even more special by starring alongside our own Australian-born Bond, George Lazenby.

While the exhibit doesn’t open until November, tickets are already on sale. And ladies … I’m not quite sure if Daniel Craig will be in attendance, but we can only hope.
