    Australian MuseumAustralian Museum Sydney, Australia
    The oldest museum in Australia is the Australian Museum in Sydney, with an international reputation in the fields of anthropology and natural history, showcasing collections of anthropology, mineralogy, paleontology, vertebrate and invertebrate zoology. Beside the exhibitions, it is involved in indigenous studies, community programs and research. It was initially called the Colonial Museum or Sydney Museum, renamed in 1836 by a sub-committee meeting during an argument that is should become the Australian Museum. It was founded in 1845 by Earl Bathurst, the secretary of state for the colonies, who had written to the governor of New South Wales of his intention to found a public museum and provide it with 200 pounds a year for its upkeep and maintenance. The museum's first home was a room in the offices of the Colonial secretary, but continuing to move about for the next three decades in the city, until moving into its present location in 1849. The majestic sandstone structure, just opposite Hyde Park, opened to the public in 1857. In the 19th century, galleries would mostly include big display cases that had been overly filled with specimens and relics, with the exhibits being enhanced with dioramas that show various habitat groups in the 1920s. The museum began to grow in the field of scientific research and would continue with Frank Talbot and a new department of Environmental Studies that had been created in 1968. In 1978, the museum would officially launch its Australian Museum Exhibition Train that would bring children and the people of the province into contact with the marvelous wonders of nature, wildlife and evolution. The two carriage train was restored at Eveligh Carriage Works and then fitted with exhibits of the museum, with one carriage displaying the evolution of the earth, man and animals, with the second being used for visual displays and lectures. The museum believes that it will take the train two years to visit all the cities and towns of New South Wales.
