As part of our 200-year celebrations, the Chau Chak Wing Museum (CCW Museum) at the University of Sydney has curated a display of Society-related objects from the Macleay Collections, echoing Society Conversazione of the 19th and early 20th centuries when scientific discoveries were exhibited to the public.

The items on display are listed on the Chau Chak Wing Museum website. They relate directly to such important historical figures as Sir Charles Nicholson, W B Clarke, Lawrence Hargrave and Ida Browne.

The display is in the Nelson Meers Foundation Auditorium and can be viewed on weekends (*) between 12 pm–4 pm by seeing the staff at the CCW Museum front desk who will provide access to the venue.

The last day for the objects to be on display will be Sunday 25 September.

(*) Please note:  From time to time there are Museum events in the Auditorium on Saturday afternoons. These are generally free and open to the public and advertised on the CCW Museum website. If you intend to see the display on Saturday please check to see if there are any events on in the Auditorium and plan your visit accordingly.
