Old objects, new stories
Rare Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander objects from the British Museum will go on show in Australia for the first time from 27 November 2015. The Encounters exhibition at the National Museum is the climax of years of research and community engagement.
Encounters is a collaborative project between the National Museum of Australia, the British Museum, the Australian National University and a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.
The Encounters exhibition is supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.
