    TRANSFORMED AUSTRALIAN MUSEUM TO REOPEN ON SATURDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2020 Revamped, Reopened and General Admission is Free! Sydney, 28 October 2020: The Australian Museum (AM) will reopen to the public on Saturday 28 November after a 15 month $57.5m building transformation which has significantly increased public spaces and improved amenities within the historic museum complex on the corner of William and College Streets. As a major bonus for the public, the NSW Government has announced general admission will be FREE to celebrate the reopening of the iconic institution, providing access to the AM for all and helping position the region’s leading natural history and culture museum among the best in the world. In its most extensive renovation in decades, Australia’s first museum, originally founded in 1827, has redeveloped its public and exhibition spaces. This includes adding more than 3,000sqm of new public space, repurposed from back-of-house areas. Known as Project Discover, the transformation was made possible by the NSW Government contributing $50.5m and generous philanthropic support from AM private donors.
