About National Museum of Australia
The National Museum of Australia, in Canberra houses a fascinating collection that explores the social history and key issues which have shaped our nation. The museum was established by an act passed through parliament many years ago- it's now one those things you can't live without if visiting this beautiful city!
The museum houses Australia's largest collection of Aboriginal bark paintings and stone tools, as well as other artifacts dating back 50 thousand years. It features a timeline that tells the story from 1788 when British settlers first arrived to modern day Sydney going through key events such like Federation or even how it played an important role in hosting games during Olympics 2000.
The new Museum is a powerful and immersive experience, which could be seen as an exploration of Australia's history. The building itself has been designed by architect Howard Raggatt (designer) with the theme "knotted ropes." This brings together many story Tellers from all over our country in one space- telling their stories through architecture!
