Tailor your museum experience with our range of ticket options for every budget.

We offer FREE entry to the museum’s galleries and selected exhibitions but some of our special exhibitions are ticketed. Don't worry - you can purchase tickets to these exhibitions on the day!

For a complete museum experience our Big Ticket offers the best value and provides full access to the museum, our vessels, special exhibitions and kids programs.

Our tickets allow you to come and go as you please, so why not explore the surrounding Darling Harbour precinct while you’re here.

Buy your tickets online ahead of time for fast and easy museum entry. Tickets are valid for 12 months for general admission.
