Ladies and Gentlemen, I propose two " Exhibit Expeditions"... there are a number of exhibits coming to Melbourne in the next couple of months that may well be of interest to those of a Steampunk Persuasion..
First up, The "Titanic Artefacts Exhibition" happening at Melbourne museum:

I propose an expedition to the expedition on Sunday 30th May - meeting at the museum at 11am.

Shortly thereafter, we are to enjoy the "Tim Burton" exhibition happening at ACMI. I though Sunday 27th June might be a good day to see this:
From the website:
Explore the creative genius behind Edward Scissorhands, Batman and Alice in Wonderland.
From June to October 2010, ACMI hosts a unique exhibition direct from The Museum of Modern Art, New York. An Australian exclusive, Tim Burton: The Exhibition is a landmark retrospective charting Tim Burton's creative vision and process from his earliest work to the spectacular Alice in Wonderland.
Curated in direct collaboration with Burton, the exhibition brings together over 700 works, including paintings, drawings, puppets, costumes, storyboards and film. Discover the elements of gothic fantasy, dark humour and motifs that characterise Burton's work as director, concept artist, illustrator and photographer.
Curated by Ron Magliozzi, Assistant Curator, and Jenny He, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film, with Rajendra Roy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film, The
Museum of Modern Art, New York.

For both these Exhibit Expeditions, we advise those interested to purchase their own tickets, and if you wish to dress up for the occasion (any excuse, right?) you're certainly encouraged (though not obliged) to do so.. I thought it might also be nice to share a meal together afterwards.
