Australia’s first ever museum, The Australian Museum offers visitors a great opportunity to explore nature and culture.
Some of the attractions that you would not want to miss out on at Australian Museum include stories of indigenous Australians, skeletons and facts about insects and dinosaurs. Be sure to check out the precious stones, minerals, fossils and meteorites to give you a great geological perspective of our planet. Another great attraction of the museum is the specimens of native Australian mammals, reptiles, birds and fish. There is also a broad spectrum of both land and marine environments about whose stories are worth hearing. Here, you also get to enjoy numerous artefacts from indigenous Australia, as well as the Pacific.
Visitors may take flash and video photography in all the permanent and most temporary exhibitions. Check with a museum staff member before shooting the Indigenous Australians exhibition.
