Australian Museum

The Australian Museum is located at the edge of the city, in the inner city suburb of Darlinghurst. The Barnet Wing was opened in 1868, designed by colonial architect Alexander Dawson in the Neo Classicism architectural style. It features the main entrance of the museum from College Street, opposite Hyde Park. It was an extension of the Lewis Wing built in 1852 in William Street.

  7. We think of museums as old buildings for old stuff, but when it opened it was a new building! Quite a contrast in styles with the Maritime Museum.
