Behind the Scenes Tours at Australian Museum

Sneak a peek at an irreplaceable collection of more than 16 million objects and experience incredible treasures - creatures large and small, birds and mammals, ancient fossils and precious minerals, plus incredible cultural artefacts from Indigenous Australia and the Pacific.
Visit working areas normally reserved for staff and researchers, where rare specimens are carefully preserved, and scientists conduct the latest scientific research into life on planet Earth.
