Discovery Walkthrough June: What's That Sound?

Duration: 30 mins
Saturdays and Sundays in June 2021, 10:00, 11:30, 1:00 and 2:30 Museums Discovery Centre Free Entry

Over 4000 collection objects are on display each weekend at the Museums Discovery Centre, from across the transport, technology and social history collections. Each object has a unique backstory and offers insight into our past and present.

Discovery Walkthroughs are 30-minute guided tours. They occur every Saturday and Sunday at 10am, 11:30am, 1pm and 2:30pm.

The theme for June 2021 is What’s that Sound? Be taken on a tour of the sounds surrounding us. Some sounds provide help, such as alarms and sirens. Others we choose to hear because they enrich our lives ― such as the noises made by gaming consoles, clocks, and of course, musical instruments. On this tour we will explore lots of types of sounds.

Discovery Walkthroughs are free and you can register your interest when you arrive on the day subject to availability. If you would prefer to book you can do so here.

To help plan your visit, please find information here about the measures we’ve put in place in response to COVID-19 to keep everyone safe.
