Reading stuff on the internet will never compare to being in the presence of past cultures and creatures, in the form of artefacts and complete dinosaur skeletons. Enter Sydney’s Best Museum, like, physically go and enter that neoclassical sandstone building near Hyde Park. At the Australian Museum, walk among prehistoric animals, insect specimens and stunning minerals, as well as the insightful and immersive anthropological exhibitions. Don’t miss the Aztecs exhibition before it has to close in February. The museum will be open late on Thursday nights in December and January so you can sip on Mexican-inspired drinks and groove with the Latin DJ, all while experiencing the cultural treasures of one of the world’s greatest civilisation.
