Covid-19 Corona Virus Update

The Museum is currently open operating on a restricted capacity of 100 pax per timed one hour sessions.

This allows up to one hour in the upstairs Museum galleries then unlimited access to the dinosaur garden, gift shop and undercover decks BOOK HERE.

We request that all bookings are made online in advance HERE to avoid disappointment when we are fully booked

Please check the online booking availability before visiting as we will be hosting school group tours in the coming weeks and the Museum will be closed for general admissions whilst the school groups are in the Museum.

When there is no online booking availability mid-week we will likely be hosting a school at these times.

We recommend downloading the Check In CBR contact tracing app HERE before arrival – this is now MANDATORY to check in before you enter most business venues in Canberra

If any of your party is showing any visible signs of illness please do not travel as you will not be able to enter the Museum.

Thank you for your understanding as we try to help stop the spread of the virus.

Unfortunately the ACT is in a stay at home lockdown until October 15 and the Museum is currently closed

We hope to be able to re-open in line with ACT Government health advice once restrictions are lifted

We request that when restrictions lift all bookings are made online in advance HERE to help us manage visitor numbers in a safe manner
