200 Treasures of the Australian Museum

Exhibition and Shows

14 Oct 2017 to 31 May 2020

What do you treasure? An object, a person, a memory? Come to the Westpac Long Gallery where you can see 100 of the most-valued objects from the Australian Museum’s collections. Some are very old; some are very rare. Some are beautiful; others mysterious. All tell fascinating and unexpected stories – about the Museum, about Australia and its region, or about the wonders of the natural world.

Along with these unique objects you can discover the stories of 100 extraordinary people who have shaped Australia and made it the country it is today. Scientists, explorers, and pioneers; entrepreneurs, athletes, and artists; politicians, an outlaw and a saint. Their immeasurable influence on the nation makes them true Australian treasures.

What extraordinary stories will you discover at the Australian Museum?
