Australian Museum

For over 180 years the Australian Museum has been at the forefront of Australian scientific research, collection and education.

Australia’s first public museum was established in Sydney in 1827 with the aim of procuring ‘many rare and curious specimens of Natural History’. Today the Australian Museum continues its dual roles in research and education. From a ‘beautiful Collection of Australian curiosities’, the Museum has grown to an internationally recognised collection of over 18 million cultural and scientific objects.
