This booklet explores the inspiration and ideas behind the development of the National Museum of Australia and gives the reader a taste of the Museum's exhibitions and collections. The Museum focuses on the main concepts of land, nation and people, and seeks to narrate the stories of Australia through the voices that combine subjects such as science, technology, creative arts, and social and historical sciences. This booklet illustrates, in full colour, some of the objects from the Museum's five core galleries and includes information about its programs and future directions.
