Planning your visit with children

The AM is a place where kids can explore the natural world around them, stimulate their imaginations and inspire curious kids minds.

Kids will go wild with hands-on experiences, dinosaurs, giant megafauna, rocks and minerals.

There's also a wonderful view from the level 4 cafe with great food and drinks if you need a little break from the discovery and exploration.


Free admission for kids under 16

Children under the age of 16 gain free general admission to the Australian Museum, every day of the year.
