More About Hotels near The Australian Museum...

What's The Australian Museum?

The Australian Museum is the oldest museum in the country, founded in 1827. The museum's initial collection grew over time, and the original museum was relocated several times before the current structure opened in 1857. Multiple wings were later added to the main structure, with the building's historic and more modern architectural elements seemlessly blended to create the beautiful facade you see today. 

Which Hotels Have the Best View Near The Australian Museum?

The Museum Lodge and TAB William Hotel East Sydney are found directly across the street from the Australian Museum. Both offer unparalleled views of the museum and Hyde Park. They are reasonably priced, but there are plenty of other budget-friendly hotels found within walking distance of the museum, albeit without direct views of this important landmark.

What are the Benefits or Drawbacks from Staying at a Hotel Near The Australian Museum?

The museum is located in Woolloomooloo Bay, Sydney's equivalent of New York City's Manhattan. There's an incredible amount of things to do and see in the area around the museum. The Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Opera House, and Mrs Macquarie's Chair are just some of the many attractions that can be reached on foot. Historic Hyde Park, modeled after Hyde Park in London, is within easy walking distance of the museum. The Royal Botanic Gardens is also found nearby, featuring lovely pathways and views of Wooloomooloo Bay.

What Do I Need to Know About The Australian Museum?

The museum's operating hours are 9:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. every day, with the exception of Christmas Day. There is an entry fee, but rates vary depending on the size of your group. Guided tours of the various galleries are offered, and visitors have the option of booking one in advance.
