Carnival of Curiosity – it’s happening now!

The State Library’s Carnival of Curiosity has just kicked off and already there’s a lot happening. Come on down to the Library and be part of this special day of surprises.

There are heaps of free activities for kids – circus tricks, magic, things to make and draw, amazing tales and even a time machine. Get up close to Ned Kelly’s armour, Captain Cook’s waistcoat, the extraordinary 1866 Press Dress, our smallest and most gigantic books – plus there are musical performances, talks from artists and writers, tours for history buffs and lots more.

It’s on NOW. Don’t miss out!
