Guided Chau Chak Wing Museum Tour

Enjoy an interesting expert guided tour of Sydney University’s historic collections, now housed in the purpose-built Chau Chak Wing Museum.

Join us at the Chau Chak Wing Museum for morning tea and a guided tour of the highlights of the spectacular collection. The museum, located at the University of Sydney in Camperdown, opened in November 2020 and not only brings together the Nicholson, Macleay and university art collections under one roof but more than 70% of what is displayed has not been seen for over 20 years. The Nicholson collection is the largest collection of antiquities in the Southern Hemisphere and the Macleay collection includes very important natural history objects.

This special guided tour takes you through the exhibitions from visual arts to natural history, medieval antiquities to indigenous culture and scientific instruments. After, enjoy a scrumptious morning tea of mini croissants, danishes and muffins.
