Treasures Illuminated

Exhibition and Shows

28 Nov 2018 to 31 Dec 2019

One of the greatest collections of treasures in the nation’s history comes to life in an extraordinary new “light and sound” show to be unveiled at the Westpac Long Gallery in the Australian Museum.

A world of spectacular storytelling and discovery awaits tourists and visitors in a new museum experience, Treasures Illuminated, a stunning audiovisual showcase of priceless objects selected from the AM’s collection of 21 million scientific specimens and cultural objects.

Twice daily at 11am and 2pm visitors will be ushered from the ground floor of the Westpac Long Gallery to the balconies above to watch the seven-minute production, which uses cutting-edge digital animation, laser projection and 3D mapping to bring the history and scale of our natural world to life in a cinematic-style experience.

Projections from the ceiling will fill the floor of the Westpac Long Gallery three levels below with vibrant visuals. Stories behind the museum’s acclaimed 200 Treasures exhibition unfold in a brilliant convergence of history, science and art that explores an extraordinary realm of collections and research.
