Venues

Melbourne Museum forecourtThe VMSVC main events are held once a year.  One of our main sponsors, Scienceworks museum, provide the venues for both of these activities.

In September the Melbourne Museum event, staged out side on the forecourt between the Melbourne museum and the Royal Exhibition building, is held as a precursor to the state event which is held inside the Sciencework museum on the oval.  Here the  boat pools, pursuit track and the large figure of 8 dual lane track are all placed for the weekend's races.  Participants are also able to visit the world class displays in the general halls or can, if time permits, visit any of the advanced exhibits or displays such as the planetarium.Scienceworks Museum oval
