Join burra (eel) on a fascinating learning journey through Country, at this exciting new state-of-the-art education space that immerses you in Western science and First Nations knowledges.

Trace the incredible migration of burra along estuaries and rivers, across rockpools and out to sea. As you follow the life-cycle of this surprisingly resilient fish, you and your children will learn about our environment, the Australian Museum’s science, and the importance of caring for Country and each other.

A truly unique experience in the heart of Gadigal Country where you can explore at your own pace or join a free pop-up event. Children are invited to touch, listen and see while exploring the giant burra, sensory walls and interactive play zones. General entry to the Australian Museum and Burra is free!
