Description

Spend a night at the Museum!

"An incredible night full of memories that I now have to share with my son." - Anna from Mummy Muckups

The Museum is a very different place after dark, when the hoards of visitors have left and the lights go out. Join us for an unforgettable overnight experience at the AM.

Enjoy a buffet dinner and get up close to native Australian animals such as crocodiles, pythons and lizards before coming face-to-face with our resident Muttaburrasaurus - an Australian dinosaur that lived around 100 million years ago. Embark on a tour by torchlight to discover secrets and stories of AM's collections before relaxing in the theatre to watch a family favourite film. The evening is topped off by sleeping next to some old dinosaur favourites including Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex. In the morning, you will wake to a continental breakfast at our rooftop cafe followed by family yoga in the stunning 200 Treasures exhibition.
