Help us share Australia’s stories with the nation and the world

Bequests are the gift of a lifetime. A legacy gift to the National Museum of Australia ensures future generations will experience the stories behind our nation’s rich and enduring history. Your gift helps us to conserve and add to our collection, educate and entertain our visitors, create world-leading exhibitions, and push the boundaries through our groundbreaking outreach programs.

Dr Mathew Trinca, Director, National Museum of Australia:

By joining the Museum's Bequest Circle, you will become part of an active and engaged community — one that is making a difference to the work of the National Museum. Our mission — to share Australia’s long human histories with the nation and the world — is work that can only be done with the support of our philanthropic community.
