Plan your visit
In line with the stay-at-home orders issued by the NSW Government, the AM will be temporarily closed to the public from Saturday 26 June to protect the health of visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19. We plan to reopen on Friday 1 October 2021 (subject to health advice).
