The People's Walk

Etch your name in history

The National Museum of Australia needs your help to transform its entrance into a bush garden Forecourt and People's Walk.

For a tax-deductible gift of $1000 your name, a family name or that of a loved one will be etched into a bluestone paver in our People's Walk. Gifts can be made over one or two years.

Help create a museum for the 21st century

The People’s Walk will lead visitors from the bush garden to the Museum entrance. A limited number of 40 cm x 20 cm pavers along the walk are available to be etched with donors’ names.

The walk is key to our Forecourt redesign and is the first step of an ambitious masterplan to 2030, with a doubling of our exhibition space and play areas for children of all ages.

The new Forecourt will feature a welcome to visitors from the land’s traditional owners. The People’s Walk will continue this welcome, extending it on behalf of Australia’s diverse population.

Support our vision to raise $2.5 million. Add your name to Australia's story.
