Master Plan

Gallery development is part of the Museum’s transformative Master Plan. The plan seeks to upgrade the Museum’s display space and extend the range of public experiences.

This includes our stunning Christina and Trevor Kennedy Garden and a mirrored Welcome Wall, which opened to the public in 2019.

While we are in the process of transforming the galleries, some areas will be temporarily unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience.
