Come along dressed up as your favourite character and attend one of the Museum Stories reading sessions throughout the week or join the dress-up Book Parade through the museum galleries!

There will also be a online dress-up competition on the day of the Parade with some special prizes to be won! Share your photos on the day with #MelbourneMuseum & #BookWeek2017
