National Museum Of Australia, Canberra Reviews
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.
Amazing place, definitely big enough to get lost in history. And free!! So you can go as often as you like. I especially recommend the first Australians room, it's beautiful insight to a variety of cultures and a great way to understand who's land you're on.
It's ok. I visited after the War museum is Canberra and I just expected the same level of excellence. I found it a little pointless and unstructured, displays weren't chronologically arranged so didn't get the point of the museum really. I would highly recommend avoiding the cafe, we ordered two juices and two biccis and it cost $20! Good guides though and they have a virtual reality section (we missed it but there's the option!). It's also centrally located and free so visit if you have time to spare!
The NMA is a great institution with wonderful exhibitions and fascinating permanent display. A good cafe as well. My only gripe is that the facelift being done at moment subtracts from its visual appeal.
Not ... terrible. I guess?? Be stunned by the display of door handles and locks. Thrill when you see the glass display containing, yes your eyes are telling the truth, a chickenwire fence. Be amazed by the spanner collection. Lots of authentic....sticks? Look, you’ve driven to canberra, you may as well go there.
