On February 14, three of Wagga’s most cultured institutions will be open late for you to explore with someone special.
The Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, Museum of the Riverina and Wagga Wagga City Library are opening their doors until 9pm. As you enjoy a bit of culture you’ll be serenaded by live music performances, with canapes available at the bar.
Stroll through exhibitions from groundbreaking contemporary artists at the gallery. Enjoy the riotous Best of the Bald Archys in the museum, or trade glances with beautiful strangers through the shelves of the library.
Then, at sundown, bring a picnic down to the Wollundry Lagoon for a romantic outdoor screening of the cinema classic The Princess Bride.
