The National Museum is undergoing exciting new changes as we work to build a bigger and better Museum experience for our visitors.
Our new Life in Australia (working title) gallery will open in 2021. You can follow progress in our behind-the-scenes video series on the Museum's YouTube channel.
The redevelopment is part of the Museum’s transformative Master Plan, announced at the end of 2018. The plan seeks to upgrade the Museum’s display space and extend the range of public experiences.
This includes our stunning new Forecourt Garden and a mirrored Welcome Wall, open to the public from 2019.
While we are in the process of transforming the galleries, some areas will be temporarily unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience.
