The Australian Museum in Sydney is the oldest museum in Australia and has played a significant role in the development of scientific research and education in the country. It was founded in 1827 and was originally intended as a place to display and catalogue Australia's rich and diverse flora and fauna. Over the years, the museum has evolved into a leading institution in the fields of natural history and anthropology. It houses an extensive collection of over 21 million specimens, ranging from fossils and skeletons to cultural artefacts from Australia's indigenous population. The museum is also known for its innovative exhibitions and educational programmes. It is proud to be a place where visitors of all ages can learn, discover and be inspired.
