Australian Museum
Under an ongoing process of modernisation, this museum, established just 40 years after the First Fleet dropped anchor, is doing a brilliant job of it. A standout is the Indigenous Australians section, covering Aboriginal history and spirituality, from Dreaming stories to videos of the Freedom Rides of the 1960s. The stuffed animal gallery of the natural history section manages to keep it relevant, while the excellent dinosaur gallery features the enormous Jobaria as well as local bruisers like Muttaburrasaurus.
