Overview

Australia’s first museum and one of Sydney’s leading cultural destinations, the Australian Museum (AM), is a truly unique and historic venue offering a wide range of spaces for catered functions that guests will never forget.

Built in 1850 and located in the heart of Sydney’s CBD overlooking Hyde Park, the iconic Australian Museum is housed in magnificent sandstone buildings reflecting its rich and prestigious history.
