The National Museum of Australia is a place where we can get to know the real, the treasured, the surprising and the inspirational objects from Australia’s history.

From a piece of ochre that was used to make Aboriginal art more than 50,000 years ago, to Phar Lap’s unusually large heart and the Holden Prototype No. 1, the Museum is a place that celebrates our people and our culture of storytelling, where we come together to share stories of our unique and distinctive nation. Come and join the conversation. Be part of the story. Our story.
