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 Friday 1 October (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.

Planning your visit with children

The AM is a place where kids can explore the natural world around them, stimulate their imaginations and inspire curious kids minds.

Kids will go wild with creative experiences, dinosaurs, giant megafauna, rocks and minerals.

There's also a wonderful view from the level 4 cafe with great food and drinks if you need a little break from the discovery and exploration.

Visit the dinosaurs gallery on level 2 and discover the amazing creatures that ruled the world until 65 million years ago.

Our kids programs book up quickly, so check the What's on event calendar before you visit and book online to make the most of your museum visit.
