Opening Soon! Australian Museum To Relaunch Following Major Renovation

  • Parents Only

In August 2019 the Australian Museum closed its doors for a major $57.5m renovation. 

The NSW Minister for the Arts, the Hon. Don Harwin, announced the Australian Museum would temporarily close, to be relaunched in Spring 2020. 

What To Expect

This massive makeover, called Project Discover, will significantly expand the museum's public floor space to create a touring exhibition hall for world-class exhibitions. You can also expect new education facilities, a new museum shop, a second family café on level 2, expanded Members' Lounge, cloaking and new amenities. 

I mean, just look at these artist impressions! 

Double the Attraction 

The Australian Museum will repurpose existing storage space to significantly expand the touring exhibition halls to 1500 square metres across two levels – allowing the AM to host either one major exhibition or two exhibitions simultaneously.

Those who bought annual memberships in 2019 will receive a 12 month extension, meaning they'll be first in line to see the new fit-out in 2020! 

The Australian Museum is the nation’s first museum founded more than 190 years ago and is committed to its leading work in scientific research, STEM education and creating world-class exhibitions.
