Mexico anyone?

With Tyrannosaurs wrapping up in July, our next blockbuster exhibition will be Aztecs, opening in September, along with a rich program of events, including a tour to Mexico departing May 2015. Especially designed for Members, the tour will take in all the best that Mexico has to offer. You can find further details online here or phone me on 02 9320 6225.


The last of our Tyrannosaurs talks is the grand finale that answers the question: what happened to the dinosaurs? We all want to know! Then we have two historically themed talks, the first of which marks the centenary of a major science festival held in Australia on the eve of World War 1. The second talk looks at the life of a controversial Museum curator of old, fish scientist James Ogilby. By popular demand, our Night Talks start at 6.30 pm. To book online, please visit our 'What's on' page here, or contact us on 9320 6225.

Come and visit the Museum again soon – we look forward to welcoming you!
