    Struggling to think of indoor activities, this is one to put on your list. The Australian museum has something for everyone, from geodes to live insects to ancient artefacts to dinosaurs!. With the changing exhibits there is always something new to go see and when they host evening events they are spectacular. Take a group, explore and be amazed around every corner.

    While the Australian Museum is always going to struggle compared to something like the Powerhouse, I recently went for the Aztec exhibit which really was well set up and very interesting – I really recommend trying to see this exhibit before it leaves, it’s not often we see something like this here in Australia and it was carefully set up with interesting facts and stories about the Aztec civilisation. As to the rest of the museum, there’s a lot of taxidermy but the dinosaur section is pretty cool and the T-Rex never disappoints.

    Moldly, smelly, ugly, rude, and expensive. Go enjoy some of Sydney’s beautiful art galleries and gardens instead of this lost museum.

    I’m a big fan of natural history museums and looked forward with great anticipation to visiting Australia’s oldest. On the day I was at the museum, however, a live advertisement was in place, playing commentary loudly and repeatedly and dominating the main hall. As I was there mainly to see the animal collections, this live ad ruined my experience of the place. Add to this that the insect displays were mouldy and had obvious dermestid damage; the plants used in the insect dioramas were real (?), dried-out, brown and dropping leaves; the birds were in truly bad repair, dingy and often threadbare; the minerals were displayed in no particular order; and the meteorites seemed merely an afterthought, and the result was that I was truly underwhelmed by the “natural” side of things.On the other hand, the display of contemporary indigenous artworks was fantastic. Display of historical artefacts was OK, but many artefacts were hidden under display cards, although the display cards were fairly informative.
