National Museum Of Australia, Canberra Reviews

  • A wonderful way to spend a whole day in the focal point of social history on the continent. It is the perfect place for both an international visitor on tour or for an Australian who cares for understanding and exploring their national identity. The very construction of the site is a striking addition to the Canberra skyline, and inside is a wealth of artefact from dinosaur skeletons to indigenous languages to a Holden car and caravan. I recommend checking out the travelling exhibitions so that you see something new and exciting on every visit!

  • Went recently to see the new Rome exhibition. The rest of the museum is free, you simply have to pay for the exhibit itself. Had a lovely time and lots of amazing artifacts to look at! Many other interesting galleries at the museum, definitely worth checking out whilst in Canberra!

  • I came for the Rome exhibition and it was amazing! Loved reading more about Rome but I only gave 3 stars because the parking is horrific. The car park is so small that you sped half an hour in the car circling to find a park and there isn’t many in the first place. For a national museum I expected they would have a bigger car park. Food was also great :)

  • Wonderful building and atmosphere. Recently visited the "So that you may know one another" exhibition and it was amazing. The building is beautiful and fill 6 of symbolism from the entrance to the courtyard. There are plenty of things for the kids as well. They have a well catered cafe there although it is a bit pricey. But food and service is good. Plenty of parking and wheelchair access everywhere. Have a good look around and then have a coffee outside by the lake. It's a short life. Enjoy every minute.

  • Everything was well presented and laid out and unlike pretty much the entire rest of Canberra parking was free on the weekend. Great building in really nice location. Felt there needed to be some more there to qualify as "the national museum", it was pretty light on for substance.
