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 31 July (subject to health advice).

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.
