WHEN: Friday 19th July from 5.30pm at Queensland Museum

This After Dark, join us and celebrate the historic moon landing. Step back in time to the 1960’s, an era of competitive space exploration dubbed the ‘space race.’ On Monday 21 July 1969 at 12.56pm, Eastern Standard Time, Queenslanders were among the estimated 600 million people watching the Apollo 11 moon landing television broadcast across the world.

Back on Earth, miniskirts, mini mokes, and Beatle’s music mania were all the rage. Dress up in your favourite bell-bottoms, go-go boots, or mod prints and learn how to dance Rock n Roll, or the Jitterbug with SWING ON IN.
Get ‘glammed up’ for a quick 60’s hairdo and maybe a lick of lippy at our pamper station courtesy of THE LINDY CHARM SCHOOL

Plus, sit back in our interactive 1960’s Queensland lounge room in the Café Muse to experience the excitement of watching the moon landing – the most iconic TV event of all time. Whether you turn on the radio, spin the world globe, or choose a vinyl record to play, this 1960’s experience is a great photo opportunity! Styling and furniture is courtesy of the Camp Hill Antique Centre.
