Night at the Museum will include planetarium mini-shows (for a small admission fee) and free stargazing sessions. A special feature this year will be the presentation of two public talks each night, coordinated and sponsored by the Friends of QVMAG. On 10 August QVMAG astronomer Martin George will speak about the Apollo missions to the Moon, followed by Aboriginal Elder Patsy Cameron speaking about fascinating Aboriginal Star Stories.

There is no admission fee for general entry to the Museum and the National Science Week exhibits, although some specific attractions do attract an entry fee.
