Australia’s stories come alive at the National Museum of Australia, on the shores of Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin.
The Museum’s stunning architecture provides an extraordinary place to explore the rich and diverse stories of Australia and its people.
The Museum tells the comprehensive story of Australia from 65,000 years ago to the present day through compelling objects, ideas, events and displays, focussing on Indigenous histories and cultures, European settlement and our interaction with the environment. The Museum’s exhibition program brings the world’s cultures to Australia and presents Australia’s history and culture to the world.
With its waterfront café and quality gift shop, a visit to the Museum is a great way to learn about Australia’s land, nation and people.
