There’s a Wallace & Gromit Exhibition Coming To Australia

By Ben Tyers - 17 Nov 2016

You've heard right, your favourite cheese loving claymation characters—Wallace & Gromit—are getting their very own exhibition in Australia! 

"Wallace & Gromit and friends: The magic of Aardman" is making its way to Melbourne's ACMI, celebrating 40 years of one of the world's most successful animation studios as part of the Victorian Government's Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series.

Be sure that you're not wearing the wrong trousers (ahem) as you check out more than 350 objects including original artworks and over 50 set pieces such as Wallace’s Cracking Contraptions and Gromit’s famous vegetable garden; Shaun the Sheep sets; the flying machine from Chicken Run; and the spectacular 5-metre tall ship from The Pirates! Band of Misfits. You'll also get a sneak peak of additional artworks from their upcoming feature film Early Man.

Tickets go on sale from Thursday, November 17, you can grab them here. We feel a Melbourne city break coming on!
