Working with Google

The National Museum's Google Arts and Culture presence features key Australian sporting objects, a collection of convict tokens and photographs showing frontier life.

It also included virtual tours of the Museum's exterior and galleries in 2015. There have been many changes since the Google Street View capture and the galleries have changed substantially.

The National Museum of Australia gratefully acknowledges the support provided by private and institutional lenders to the Museum’s permanent gallery displays in 2015:
