Time Lens

By Museum Victoria

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Built by a curious curator, the Time Lens takes would-be explorers on a scavenger hunt around Melbourne Museum to discover some of the treasured objects and hidden gems of the museum’s collection. The app is designed to enhance a visit to the museum, but it is also fun to play at home.

Time Lens Episode 1: Treasures and Gems invites families to solve puzzles and riddles to find fascinating fossils, amazing inventions and even talking toilets.

When found, each of the 15 objects comes to life on your screen and tells you its own story.

Travel back to 19th century Melbourne and discover what made it so marvellous. Meet Phar Lap, the famous race horse, the week before his big win in the Agua Caliente Handicap. Learn what terrifies the elusive Giant Squid. Bump into a Cockney fox on holiday with his family in Australia.

Customer Reviews

Interactive Museum

Time Lens is a great way to enhance you're next visit Museum Victoria - and interact differently.

I had a 7 and 8 year old girl using it for the first time yesterday, running from one clue to the next and getting excited about things we hadn't bothered to look at on previous visits.

The app directed them to information and real objects in a fun way, and they couldn't wait to collect all their badges.

When I asked them what they liked most about the museum, they both said 'the app.'


Really enhanced the museum experience for a 6 year old. We had been to the museum dozens of times prior, and this renewed interest in everything (not just his favourites).


I really enjoyed the app
I found it cool how they told you about the past in videos after you answered the clues
I'm 11 turning 12 and my brother is 5 turning 5 in July
What happens when you finished all the answers
The app is really cool and u should try it
