The Museum's exhibitions, programs and services aim to achieve the outcome of increasing awareness and understanding of Australia's history and culture.
Research, scholarship and the highest standards of historical accuracy underpin all the Museum's exhibitions and programs, and the Museum draws on high-level educational, interpretation and communication techniques to cater for its diverse audiences, who all have different learning styles, needs and interests.
Program 1.2 in the Museum's Portfolio Budget Statements (PBS) specifies performance measures for visitor numbers, including visits to the Museum's website, and satisfaction levels for visitors and school groups. This year, the Museum again met or exceeded the measures for this program.
