The Australian Museum offered a guided tour that covered the museum and its offerings, including a collection of 68,000 rocks and minerals, the indigenous Australians exhibition, an array of birds and insects and ancient Egyptian artifacts.
Allow yourself at least 15 minutes to browse through the museum gift shop to buy something. My partner saw some aboriginal artwork for $20 that he liked, but thought he could get it cheaper elsewhere. It ended up costing us more in terms of time spent looking for it for the rest of the trip. He managed to get something for his wall in Adelaide, our last stop, for the same price. He should have just bought it and been done with it instead of wishing he had bought it when he had the opportunity and kicking himself for not doing so. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children, $17.50 to $25 for a family, and children under five and Australian seniors get in for free.Daily 9:30am to 5pm, closed Christmas Day.Phone: (02) 9320 6000, Fax: (02) 9320 6051
