Australian Museum

Welcome to Pedestal 3D


Pedestal 3D and the Australian Museum are working together to provide a new virtual experience with objects and specimens from the Australian Museum.


The Australian Museum is the largest natural history museum in the southern hemisphere and has over twenty million cultural and natural history objects used by communities and researchers from around the world.


The objects shown here are a tiny selection of the objects held in the Museum’s collections and have been captured using a variety of techniques including 3D scanning and micro CT scanning.


In coming months, the number of objects on Pedestal 3D will grow as the Museum targets important parts of the collection including Pacific collections and type specimens from the natural history collections for scanning.
