Concierge.com's insider take:
This modernist monolith with the sail-like roof is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere, so allow a few hours to do it justice. Six themed exhibition halls explore Australia's complex fauna, flora, culture, scientific legacy, and indigenous heritageand give visitors a sense of Australian society. A highlight is the world's first "living forest gallery," where nearly 8,000 live trees are home to a variety of species including snakes, birds, fish, and frogs. Another must-see is the sensitively curated Aboriginal gallery, Bunjilaka, with its fascinating archival footage, artifacts, and oral histories.
