AUSTRALIAN MUSUEM

If you like to get your nerd on in every possible knowledge pocket then the Australian Museum is your hangout. Here you can plunder the depths of a treasure trove of science, culture, anthropology, animal facts and more in a manner that makes Google seem primitive. Where else can you see a sublime 2800-year-old ancient Egyptian mummy, marvel at a breathtaking mineral collection, become swept away by stories of the Dreaming and ponder sustainable fashion trends of the future all under a single roof?
