The Australian Museum 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 a range of free creative experiences and programs including dinosaurs, giant megafauna, rocks and minerals.

There's also a wonderful view from Level 4 Bistro Gadi and a family-friendly café, Billabong Waterhole, located on Level 2, if you need a little break from the discovery and exploration. Find our more about food and drinks at the Australian Museum.
