Sydney's got its fair share of post-pandemic art and cultural events happening at the moment and, now, it's getting a brand new museum. Located within the University of Sydney's Camperdown campus, the Chau Chak Wing Museum will open to the public on Wednesday, November 18, bringing together the tertiary educator's artistic, scientific, cultural and archaeological collections all in the one spot.

To celebrate its launch, the four-level, 2000-square-metre museum will be showing 18 new exhibitions, from an exploration of Ancient Rome and The Mummy Room to an immersive installation by contemporary Aussie artist Daniel Boyd and a major showcase of art from eastern Arnhem Land titled Gululu dhuwala djalkiri: welcome to the Yolŋu foundations, demonstrating 100 years of Yolŋu knowledge sharing through painting and sculpture. In the Natural Selections exhibition, you'll find plenty of bird, mammal, fish and shell specimens, plus a rare giant beetle collected in the 18th century. Or, check out Coastline, an art exhibition of works depicting the oceanic and coastal landscapes by Aussie artists like Grace Cossington Smith, Arthur Streeton and J W Power.

The Museum is free to enter and will also host talks, educational programs and guided tours.

The Chau Chak Wing Museum opens to the public on November 18 and is open 10am–5pm Monday–Wednesday, 10am–9pm Thursday and 12–4pm Saturday and Sunday. The Museum will be closed from December 23, 2020 and will re-open on January 7, 2021.
