About the Australian Museum 

The Australian Museum (AM), operating within the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, is the first museum in Australia and was founded in 1827. The AM provides access, engagement and scientific research to increase our understanding of natural history and culture, particularly of Australia and the Pacific region. The AM holds more than 21 million biological, geological and cultural objects in its collections, and develops programs, exhibitions and school and community education initiatives onsite, online and offsite.

The new AM mission is: To ignite wonder, inspire debate and drive change.

The new AM vision is: To be a leading voice for the richness of life, the Earth and culture in Australia and the Pacific. We commit to transform the conversation around climate change, the environment and wildlife conservation; be a strong advocate for First Nations’ culture; and continue to develop world-leading science, collections, exhibitions and education programs.
