Australian Museum - the oldest museum in the country, internationally recognized institute in the field of natural history and anthropology. Here comprehensive collection of vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as exhibits that introduce the mineralogy, paleontology and anthropology, Australia and other regions. An important focus of the museum is the scientific study of the history and culture of indigenous peoples.

Located on College Street, was initially known as the Colonial Museum or Sydney, and received its current name in June 1836 after much debate. The idea of ​​creating a museum owned by the Philosophical Society of Australasia, and it appeared in 1821, but then began to collect the first collection. But a year later, society has disintegrated, and the next fan of the museum appeared only in 1826 - it was Alexander McLeish, an entomologist from London, to the secretary of New South Wales.

The first location for the collection of the museum was a small room in the Secretariat Colony Museum then moved several times until, in 1849 has not found a permanent "residence" in the current building. This is a pretty sandstone building, located at the corner of College Street and Park Street, opposite Hyde Park, designed by the architect James Barnet. In the mid 20th century to the building of the museum were added extra 'wings', completely renovated several galleries and exhibition was created by the Department. Significantly increased the number of staff responsible for educational programs.

In March 1978, the Museum made an unusual initiative - his project was launched by the Australian Museum exhibition train, which was to "acquaint the students and residents of New South Wales, the amazing world of nature and evolution." In one car of the train could get to know the evolution of our planet, animals and humans. In the other - listen to fascinating lectures. In two years, the train has traveled all the settlements staff!

In 1995, the museum was founded new research centers in the field of nature conservation, biodiversity, evolution of the planet, etc. georaznoobraziya
