National Museum of Australia

The National Museum of Australia is the place for Australian Curriculum: History resources and learning.

Visit the National Museum of Australia and get hands-on with the history and cultures of Australia. Take a tour, touch real objects and investigate the Museum through our interactive adventure game for kids, Kspace.

Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Humanities and Social Sciences, the Museum offers programs in:

  • Australian history
  • Indigenous cultures and history
  • Historical skills

Programs are available for students from preschool to senior secondary years and incorporate the Museum’s philosophy of student-directed, inquiry-based learning. Students learn as they interact with each other, handle
historical objects, engage with personal stories and record their investigations using a variety of media.

The Museum’s website also features object-rich units of work, engaging multimedia and contextualised
primary sources.

Book a program or a self-guided visit online or by phoning 02 6208 5345. Self-guided visits are free but bookings are essential. Please book as early as you can.
