The National Museum of Australia is a place that celebrates our peoples and our culture of storytelling. It is a place where we can explore our relationships to each other, the places we live in, and the objects representing our cultures and events in our past.

The Museum is the place where we come together to share stories of our unique and culturally diverse nation, to be part of a national conversation.

Come and join the conversation. Be part of the story.

Our story.
