Set exclusively in the Dinosaurs of Patagonia exhibition, Lux designed and delivered a prehistoric event experience featuring the largest dinosaur to ever roam the earth.

Night at the Museum is the Foundation for the WA Museum's signature event. Held on 10 September 2022, the sold out black-tie cocktail gala event saw over 400 guests descend onto the Special Exhibitions space at the WA Museum. Boasting a unique experience in one of WA's most exceptional venues, the event brought together the Foundation’s loyal supporters and partners for a night of fun and entertainment, to raise funds to provide a secure source of future income for the WA Museum.
Guests entered the museum to stunning meteor shower projected across the cavernous expanse of the Museum's heritage entrance. As guests ascended the grand timber staircase, soprano Naomi Johns performed a spectacular remixed version of Bellini's 'Oh Quante Volte Score'. A runway of illuminated walls guided guests towards the six-meter media wall and the beginning of the party.
Lavish champagne, oyster, gin and whiskey bars peppered the space, while gender bending performance artistes, Gendermess, starred in a kinetic installation of colour and campery on the Museum escalators. Following formalities, doors to the Special Exhibition Space opened and the sounds of the DJ Wildflower drew the crowd into the space for the party of the year. Spot performances from Gendermess, including dancing hip hop creatures and an erupting human volcano performance were highlights of the evening.
Through the events fundraising efforts, guests collectively raised over $100,000 for the Foundation for the WA Museum. The proceeds help the Foundation to provide the WA Museum with ongoing funding to support its endeavours. This includes bringing international exhibitions to WA, expanding the Museum’s research capabilities, providing educational opportunities, funding acquisitions, and showcasing WA’s stories to the rest of the world.
