Event Details

We invite you ...

To celebrate the launch of Feathers of the Gods and Other Stories from the Australian Museum with exclusive access to the Museum's scientists and collection managers who wrote some of the stories featured in this book.

Enjoy a complimentary drink, as well as a special viewing of selected precious objects and specimens from the depths of the Australian Museum's collection, including the Cook feather cape and the Shirase Sword of Friendship. Many of the items have never been on display so this is your very rare opportunity to get up close and personal with a small piece of history.

Frank Howarth, Director of the Australian Museum, and Diccon Loxton, Chairman of the Australian Museum Foundation, will officially launch the book at 2.30pm in the theatre followed by a small reception in the Atrium. 

When: Saturday 19 October 2013 at 1.00pm
Where: Hallstrom Theatre, Australian Museum, (entry via William Street reception)
Inclusions: Entry to the Australian Museum, a complimentary drink, 20% off the book at the Museum's shop, exclusive access to see the collection items on display and a chance to meet the scientists and staff who wrote some of the stories.

More about the book ...
Mysterious packages, academic wrangles, labours of love, DNA detectives, art revolutions, shipwreck survivors, a frog that sings like a bird – if the Australian Museum’s collections could talk, these are the stories they would tell.

In Feathers of the Gods and Other Stories from the Australian Museum, scientists, collection managers, coordinators, conservators, archivists and volunteers share their favourite tales inspired by the Museum’s collections.

This beautiful publication was made possible through the generous support of Australian Museum Members. Image supplied by Amanda Teer
