Live Curiously

Australia's first museum, we celebrate curious minds.

Advocating for the richness of life, the earth and culture in Australia and the Pacific, the Australian Museum Shop aims to ignite wonder through thinking, learning and play. We are home to a curated selection of learning toys, homewares, gifts and books inspired by our natural history and cultural collections. With an emphasis on ethical and sustainable sourcing and a focus on encouraging curious minds, you'll always find something special.

All proceeds from sales at the AM Shop directly support the Australian Museum's collections, research, education, exhibitions and public programs, with a focus on our commitment to improve community understanding of climate change and demonstrate how we can protect and conserve the natural environment.

We champion ethical buying of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and products. All works are acquired directly from makers or owned art centres throughout Australia, and suppliers who are signatories to the Indigenous Art Code.  Find out more here.
