Are you an organisation, exhibiting company, educational or research institution keen to demonstrate your work, ideas and latest innovations to students and visitors during 2020 Science Week? If you are keen to find out more about how to get involved, get in contact with us by emailing programs@austmus.gov.au.


Celebrate all things science with us, meet like-minded people and get an inside look into how a science event is run.

Volunteers are the ambassadors of the Museum’s Science Week celebrations, assisting our small team to help visitors find their way, provide useful information, and make them feel welcomed. They are the face, heart and soul of the event; the embodiment of enthusiasm and science personified!

The support of our volunteers is integral to our event, which saw over 5,000 students attend Australian Museum across just 2 weeks in 2019
