Outdoor Cinema – Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The National Motor Museum will present another of its popular Outdoor Cinema screenings of classic Australian road movies in January, with one of the best feel-good Aussie comedies of the 90s, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. On the scenic grounds of the Museum on Australia Day-Eve, film-lovers can recline on picnic rugs underneath the stars, listen to an all Aussie playlist prior to the film, tuck into their picnic hampers or sample the local produce BBQ. Come sunset, they kick back and enjoy the much-loved road-movie classic.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert follows two drag queens and a transgender woman on their epic journey across the Australian Outback as they travel in a tour bus named ‘Priscilla’ from Sydney to Alice Springs performing their own unique style of cabaret. Featuring exquisite cinematography of the Australian outback, the film features Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, and Terence Stamp.

In addition to the film screening, a showcase of Australia’s finest unique vintage caravans will be on the grounds accompanied by their owners who will open their doors on these classic kitsch creations for movie-goers to take a look inside their retro gems.

The Museum is encouraging people to bring blankets and rugs, or low lying chairs, and to camp out on the grounds and enjoy the ambience of this unique setting. They will also be putting on an Aussie BBQ, but picnic baskets and BYO alcohol and drinks are most welcome.

The movie ticket includes Museum entry and a rare glimpse of the collection at twilight.

Leviathan: An Astonishing History of Whales

Leviathan: An Astonishing History of Whales is coming to the South Australian Maritime Museum.

This new exhibition straddles the boundary between natural and cultural history. It challenges audiences to look beyond the biological importance of whales and to consider the cultural questions by exploring different viewpoints – unpacking the history of the relationship between humans and whales across time and cultures. Objects linked to both the bloody, visceral history of hunting and processing these giant mammals will be on display, as well as those linked to the movement dedicated to stopping it.

Leviathan: An Astonishing History of Whales opens Friday 15 December and will run until Sunday 2 September, 2018.

Pageant Day Badge Making

Join us on Pageant Day after the parade to make some badges about what you’re most passionate about.

We will kick off at 11am, just after Father Christmas has arrived, so you can explore the Centre (on North Terrace right in the middle of the action) and make some badges while you wait to avoid the crows at the Magic Cave.

We have all the bits, you bring the ideas!

Rest in Pieces – Beginner Taxidermy Workshop

We are pleased to be hitting the road and coming to RADelaide!

Rest in Pieces invites you to attend this very special, introductory Taxidermy Workshop. The course will take you on your own journey into this fascinating art form and will help you come to grips (literally!) with some of the techniques involved in creating taxidermy.

Throughout the day you will learn how to skin and preserve your little rat, as well as how to mount him into a beautiful but very greedy cheese fiend. Everything will be supplied on the day including your rat, all the necessary tools, an apron, snacks, lunch, great company, and even a glass of celebratory bubbles!

While we have allowed 10 hours for the day we don’t believe it will take this long. Of course, everyone works at their own pace but the sooner you finish the sooner you get to the glass of bubbles! : )

No previous taxidermy experience is necessary.

If you have a rat phobia we can provide a mouse but the rats have a very sweet face and are incredibly fluffy. Plus they are slightly larger than a mouse so they are easier to work on.
