National Museum Of Australia, Canberra Reviews - Write a Review
The museum is a little smaller than ones in other states with interesting but standard displays of Australian history. Favourite parts being Farlap’s heart and the architecture of the museum itself. What really makes it shine is the high standard of visiting exhibitions that are shown. This trip we went to see the exhibit Song Lines. The depth and quality was breath taking and we spent over an hour contemplating the works. The cafe is expensive as expected but the parking is cheap and plentiful.
Relaxing place to walk around. The exhibits are interesting and some of them are interactive. The surrounding area has lots of greenery and great views of the lake.
We loved our visit. We went to see the Lego Exhibition unfortunately we didn't book but we were able to get into the 12.15 pm time slot. An enjoyable visit.
Free entry, good exhibits, knowledgeable staff. Special exhibits always worth the additional cost. Museum shop great for gifts. Cafe serves nice food but is a little expensive.
Fantastic and modern museum! Love its architecture, particularly the inside walls and ceilings: incredibilly asymmetric. Great place to know about Australian history.
