Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Museum is a railway station on the City Circle line in Sydney, Australia. Named for its proximity to the Australian Museum, the station is located entirely underground at the southern end of Hyde Park. The station features photos depicting its past in the pedestrian tunnels and is regarded as the least used of the City Circle stations. There are two platforms, each 158.5 metres long by 3.8 metres wide, under an arch with span 14.6 metres. Museum's signage and cream tiling with maroon highlights are reminiscent of a typical London Underground tube station of the era, however its layout of central tracks under a grand arch are more in keeping with older stations of the Paris Metro. Until the construction of the Airport Line, it was the only underground station in Sydney without an island platform. It is a companion to St. James station - opened at the same time. Regular services to Museum began on 20 December 1926.show more
