    I'm confused. The last time I went it was free. That was only just before the lockdown.

    It shows as permanently free on the website.

      It was free for a short time after refurbishment after reopening in 2021 but prompty shut down again due to lockdown. I think they will return to $15 an adult in a few months.

      In 2020 before being closed for refurbishment:
      Australian Museum entry fee for adults is $15, for children of age group 0-4 and 5-15 it is free.

        for children of age group 0-4 and 5-15 it is free.

                  Is that is has a significantly higher chance of illness and death than the alternatives.

                  And the alternatives give your immunity system a heads-up on the virus.

                  You'd think natural immunity fans (as opposed to unnatural immunity???) would understand immunity 101 considering they are so educated.

            @ldq: "catch it and become properly immune"

            Yeah catch the virus so you don't catch the virus. Freakin genius move there.

            Go get vaccinated. And if you're unlucky enough to get covid despite being vaccinated, you can generate your "proper immunity" with a substantially lower risk of being hospitalised.

            • +3

              @DogGunn: Wrong. Catch it to gain a proper certifiable immunity instead of getting jabbed to claim a piss weak waning joke of immunity, risk all sorts of adverse effects, then still catch it, then be mandated to have a booster, then another.

              • +2

                @ldq: Wrong what? You haven't pointed out what part was wrong.

                P.S. you're more likely to get serious issues from COVID-19 than a serious adverse reaction from the virus.

              • +2

                @ldq: You have no idea of the effects of catching covid if you think it's that easy to get over it.
                Please do yourself a favour if you get covid don't get treated in a hospital.
                People with that mindset are not worth our time and effort.
                People like you just put burden on our healthcare system, and for what… my wife and I both work in health. My wife directly looking after covid patients specifically in hospital. She has seen so many patients die to covid. Some are parents to young children. And guess what they also didn't get vaccinated. The chance of someone dying while vaccinated was dramatically reduced and generally the comorbidities of the patient contributed to the overall outcome.
                The medical/nursing staff are being comprimised by wearing their full PPE affecting their oxygenation and health trying to look out for stubborn people like you.
                Like I said do yourself and all of us a favour if you get covid please don't seek help in a hospital.

                  @maverickjohn: That is their reasoning as well for vaccinating children.
                  Because it stops them spreading it to the community.
                  Not because it is good for them . Or has benifits but for selfish adults who don't want to catch cooties.
                  People who are dying have 3 comorbidities.
                  Not 1 not 2 but 3. On average. And elderly and obese.
                  Meaning they have to be elderly, with cancer and heart disease and respiratory problems.
                  3 comorbidities means (to put it nicely) you're not going to survive the next winter anyway

    This whole circus is getting more and more ridiculous by day. What's the difference between unvaccinated person entering and roaming around the museum and a person with exemption, Aren't they absolutely identical? Difference between going to woollies, Coles and the museum is? None.

    Difference between 10th October going to a coffee shop ordering a coffee and same thing on the 11th? Or from doing the same thing on the 1st December. So overnight you become a leper and then overnight you again become a citizen?

      • Are you questioning my patriotism, are you saying that i don't want to participate in this collective exercise of doing the right thing?
        That i don't want to protect Australian way of life and what we stand for?

        Right thing, right thing, how did i come up with the thought that that's the right thing to do 🤔

    • +9

      Difference is there are far few people with a legitimate medical exemption. On the other hand, there are plenty of idiots who refuse to vaccinate. By encouraging vaccination, we protect the community and the health system. No vaccine program covers 100% of the population, but you need maximum uptake. It’s risk minimisation not removing all risk.

      • +1

        We also increase our personal 5G reception and help the Soros Gates Tyranny to take away our freedoms

    • +5

      Amen to you sir. This has never been about safety. If it was, they would be fair dinkum and test everyone (vaccinated or unvaccinated) using say a rapid antigen test (less sensitive than PCR but does not throw false positives) before entry. Vaccinated people still get infected and still transmit the virus- sorry to say it but they can still pass it on to the terminally ill, immunocompromised, or little old grandma

    • +4

      It's about reducing the movement of unvaccinated people to stagger their hospitalisations so hospitals are not overrun. Medically exempt people are small enough in number to not cause any major issues and it's not their fault they're not vaccinated. As the percentage not vaccinated reduces, the hospitalisations go down and the few unvaccinated by choice can be given the same opportunities. It's not the museum's choice, it's the government.

      They have to pick some date, the dates are based on the expected vaccination rates. This is all pretty simple stuff. If everyone was unvaccinated by choice the lockdowns would just continue or there'd be tens of thousands of deaths, not just from covid, but from the hospitals being overrun and not being able to treat other patients. If people choose not to get vaccinated that's fine, but I don't have any sympathy that they need to wait a bit longer for privileges that they're not contributing to being available.

          It’s possible that vaccines won’t stop or significantly lessen the chances of infection. But jabs might make infected people less able to pass the virus on, or make them less infectious, and so reduce transmission.

          Several research groups in Israel are measuring ‘viral load’ — the concentration of viral particles in vaccinated people who later test positive for SARS-CoV-2. Researchers have found that viral load is a good proxy for infectiousness1.

          In preliminary work, one team observed a significant drop in viral load in a small number of people infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the two to four weeks after receiving their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, compared with those who caught the virus in the first two weeks after the injection2. “The data is certainly intriguing and suggestive that vaccination may reduce the infectiousness of COVID-19 cases, even if it does not prevent infection altogether,” says Virginia Pitzer, an infectious-diseases modeller at Yale School of Public Health in New Haven, Connecticut. The Oxford–AstraZeneca trial also observed a larger reduction in viral load in a small group of vaccinated participants than in the unvaccinated group.

          But whether these observed reductions in viral load are sufficient to make someone less infectious in real life is not yet clear, say researchers.

                              Most people don't need the polio or MMR vaccine as by far most survive those viruses and diseases. But we still vaccinate against them, for good reason.

                                Those vaccines are seem effective and weren't provisionally approved…

              • +4

                @DogGunn: That facile argument is tired.

                Firstly, I expressed in MY comment that the stated reason for mandates is to reduce transmission. However, the efficacy of this vaccine in doing so is suspect. If you took Pfizer it’s maybe 50% for maybe 6 months, with booster shots maybe longer. I could reduce transmission more by not coughing or sneezing in public. It’s SAD that we’re destroying the last vestige of what once was a LIBERAL democracy for so little gain.

            @Levity: This article is pre delta. Pretty sure the viral load in vacced and unvacced is the same with delta. So you are no less likely to spread it if you're vacced.
