Today the National Museum of Australia (NMA) is welcomed to the Cultural Attractions of Australia collective.
Canberra’s architecturally stunning National Museum of Australia tells the comprehensive story of Australia from 65,000 years ago to the present day, through compelling objects, ideas, events and displays that focus on Indigenous histories and cultures, European settlement and our interaction with the environment. Situated on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, a visit to the NMA provides a great insight into Australia’s land, nation and people.
The National Museum of Australia offers three unique experiences through Cultural Attractions of Australia’s channels:
1) In, Above & Behind the Scenes
Experience Canberra’s best scenery from a private hot air balloon. Touchdown to explore the Museum pre-opening, on an exclusive, curator-led tour, followed by champagne breakfast.
2) Out to the Shed
An incredible opportunity to see what we keep in our “off-display” purpose-built storage facilities. Followed by a lakeside lunch.
3) Big Histories
A private tour of Australia’s biggest histories and a shared lunch. Think big – Phar Lap’s heart, the first Holden Prototype and the entire Paddle Steamer Enterprise.
National Museum of Australia Director, Dr Mathew Trinca says “the museum is pleased to be a member of this innovative initiative which puts the cultural sector at the heart of the visitor experience and showcases Australia’s unique culture and history. I look forward to visitors seeing the Museum’s striking angles and loops from the air and getting a bird’s eye view of our beautiful city along the way.”
