Endeavour Voyage

Until 26 April 2021

Our landmark Endeavour Voyage: The Untold Stories of Cook and the First Australians exhibition takes you on a journey, travelling on board the ship with James Cook, and hearing stories from the First Australians on the shore. Explore the journey and the cultural legacy of the expedition.

First Australians


Our Gallery of First Australians considers the stories and experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Come with us on a journey through thousands of years as we look up close at ancient and contemporary expressions of culture, and the impact of colonisation.



Our Landmarks gallery explores Australian history since European settlement, and examines stories of people and places across the continent. Travel through some of Australia’s landmark places and stories, looking closely and discussing the objects.
