The Australian Museum’s Westpac Long Gallery was opened to the public last Friday, showcasing 350+ objects from the museum’s collection. Opening the new wing, funded by the NSW Government, Westpac Bank and corporate philanthropy, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the redevelopment was a “wonderful milestone not just for the museum but for our state”.
