Australian Museum Trustees
The Museum is governed by a Trust established under the Australian Museum Trust Act 1975.
Our 11 Trustees play a valuable role in monitoring the performance of the Museum, assisting with strategic planning processes and acting as advocates for the institution.
They are appointed for three year terms with a maximum of 10 consecutive years of service
The NSW Minister for the Arts, the Honourable George Souris, in consultation with the Australian Museum Trust, appoints our Trustees.
