Free Weekend at the Australian Museum and Powerhouse Museum

Sydney's museum scene is undergoing a significant shake-up. First, the New South Wales Government announced that it's moving the Powerhouse Museum to Parramatta. Now, it has revealed that the Australian Museum will take a 12-month hiatus.

Fancy taking a peek at both sites before the huge changes hit — and doing so for free? Across the weekend of Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18, the Powerhouse Museum and the Australian Museum will throw open their respective doors, scrap their entry fees, and welcome anyone and everyone to walk their halls and enjoy the pieces decking their halls.

If you're particularly keen on stellar photographs of nature, the free weekend coincides with the launch of this year's Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year 2019 exhibition, which'll be held at the Powerhouse Museum. You'll also be able to check out the Apollo 11 exhibit, plus favourites such as Transport and Space. Over at the Australian Museum, the Wild Planet, Dinosaurs and Surviving Australia displays all await, and so do the First Australians Galleries.

While moseying along won't cost you a cent, you will need to register in advance. Head to the Powerhouse Museum and Australian Museum websites to nab your free ticket.
