National Museum Australia

Museum in Canberra ACT

The National Museum of Australia is a social history museum that explores the land, nation and people of Australia. NAM focuses on Indigenous histories and cultures, histories of European settlement and our interaction with the environment.

Opened in 2001, the National Museum building is an architectural landmark. Inspired by the idea of a jigsaw puzzle, it reflects the many intertwined stories that make up Australia’s history.

Can’t make it to the Museum? Not to worry, you don’t need to come to Canberra to interact with the collections, our staff and other visitors. The musuem offers remote telepresence robots that offer a digital visit and interactive guided tours, as well as video conferences.

The museum offers a cafe and a gift shop. Free w-ii is available across the museum. Photography for personal use is allowed in their galleries, but not in temporary exhibitions. No flashes, tripods or monopods please.
