We take school holidays seriously at South Bank – whether you’re searching for swimming facilities, playgrounds, chocolate cafes or anything in-between, you’ll always find something to do.
To celebrate the arrival of the Easter school holidays, we’re giving away 10 family days out at Queensland Museum, the precinct’s very own hub of natural history, cultural heritage, science and human achievement. Did we mention that it’s a whole lot of fun too?
Each day-out includes a family pass (admits four) to Perception Deception and also Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives. Read on to enter and for details on each exhibit.
Perception Deception Mind melting illusions, sensory sensations, playing with perception, and discovering the world inside your head are all part of the exhibition Perception Deception. Is what we see, hear and feel real? Challenge your sensory signals and explore how your brain perceives the things and people around you. Discover how people may perceive the same thing in a different way and that reality is not what it seems.
Test your balance while walking along a path wearing special glasses, make your arms feel like they are floating, see into infinity and watch a ball disappear in mid-air. Explore your visual, multisensory, social and audio-language perception. Perception Deception is the ultimate hands-on, minds-on exhibition of mind trickery to test and fool your perceptions.
Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives Meet six mummies and unlock the secrets behind their wrappings using the latest CT scanning technology in Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives from 16 March 2018.
Featuring more than 200 artefacts from the world famous Egyptian collections of the British Museum, gain insight into the life and death of those six individuals who lived in Egypt between 3000 and 1800 years ago. Discover how they were embalmed and what life along the Nile valley was like. Explore visualisations based on the CT scans of the mummies, as well as ancient texts, coffins, masks and funerary objects to unravel their mysteries. The presentation of this exhibition is a collaboration between the British Museum and the Queensland Museum.
