Summer Nights At The Australian Museum

Although we’re all concerned with the current COVID-19 outbreak sweeping the city we are still able to get out and enjoy the longer and warming evenings. And luckily for us the revamp Australian Museum (AM) has some fantastic COVID-safe events to enjoy during he summer months.

Every Thursday night the museum have a number of free events available to enjoy. Ranging from food and drinks to live music and dinosaurs there is something for everyone.

Part of the NSW Government’s Culture Up Late initiative where Sydney’s cultural institutions will be open for extended hours during the summer, the AM will be open from 5pm – 9pm on Thursday nights in January, February, and March 2021. Summer nights at the AM will give visitors the opportunity wander through the AM’s new spaces and exhibitions and enjoy food and drink while being entertained by local DJs.

Visitors can simply walk into the AM for summer Nights at the Museum, tickets aren’t required for this special after-hours experience. The AM’s major exhibition Tyrannosaurs – Meet the Family will also be open late on Thursday nights in January, February and March and entry fees apply.

“There is something magical about the Museum at night, and we’re thrilled to be able to extend our hours on Thursday evenings to provide a fun and vibrant space for people to connect and come together – which is now more important than ever. Visitors can pop in after work or after dinner on summer evenings and enjoy a ‘Night at the Museum,’ wandering through our exhibitions, encountering special talks, enjoying live music and even late-night shopping in our new AM store,” Australian Museum’s Director and CEO, Kim McKay AO said.
