National Museum of Australia

Canberra, Australia

Canberra is in Australia’s Capital Territory; it is where you’ll find the capital of Australia! Within Canberra, you’ll find the National Museum of Australia!

The National Museum of Australia wasn’t housed in a permanent location until 2001 when its current building was custom designed. The museum focuses on the past, the present and the future of Australia. It explores key moments in the development of Australia as a nation, as well as paying attention to the 50,000 years of history of Indigenous Australians.

The building itself is a sight to behold. It was designed by Howard Raggatt and is based on a theme of knotted ropes, that are meant to symbolize the bringing together of Australia stories.

The museum has an ever-changing series of traveling and special exhibits so be sure to look into what is happening before visiting! Entry to the museum if free, but you will have to purchase a ticket for the special exhibits. Also, there is a large paid parking lot on premises.

See their official website to help plan your visit!
