In line with the stay-at-home orders issued by the NSW Government, the AM will be temporarily closed to the public from Saturday 26 June to protect the health of visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19. We will plan to reopen on Saturday 28 August (subject to health advice).

We have also temporarily suspended public programs and events. If you have registered for any AM programs or events during the closure period (26 June – 16 July), you will receive separate communication from us.

In the meantime, we encourage visitors to explore our online content hub, AM Inside Out, which offers fun activities for kids at home, fascinating stories and other ways to engage online with the AM’s collections, scientists and other programs.
