At the heart of the National Museum of Australia is our National Historical Collection, more than 210,000 objects which represent Australia’s history and cultural heritage.
The collection helps us to build connections between objects, memory, imagination and lived experience – across cultures, across communities and across time.
Collection Explorer is under development and some features are not working exactly as they should, including search and notices of what’s on display.
