Celebrating 190 years as Australia’s first museum

Do you remember your first visit to the Australian Museum? Or have a favourite memory that stands out?

Celebrate with us by sharing your stories and photos via the web form at the bottom of the page or by tagging your #AMmemory on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

By sharing your memories, you go in the draw to win an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Australian Museum for you and five friends, with lunch provided. This is a rare chance to access the vaults of the museum, and see precious treasures not normally on display. All memories shared during 2017 are eligible, with the winner announced in January 2018.

Your stories will also be posted on this page throughout the year – helping us to tell the shared history of Australia’s first museum.
