    National Museum

    by CandS Updated Feb 10, 2006

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The National features several permanent exhibitions and some moving exhibitions... A lot of the things in the museum are from and about Australia...past and present. It's a great place to go to learn more about the Australian lifestyle and history. There are a lot of things to read in the museum though (at each exhibit) so be prepared to have some 'brain strain' if you want to read it all...

    Entry is free

    Open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm daily

    Favorite thing: The National Gallery of Australia has for it's share of collection more than 100,000 works of arts, it is home to an ever-changing series of exhibitions including regular "blockbusters" from overseas.
    Tours of the masterpieces last about half an hour and are conducted by voluntary guides who are very friendly and knowledgeable.

    Fondest memory: Walking all over....we were there in the fall and the colors are still so bright and green. I just love it....

    love walking here....

    Visit the Australian National...

    Favorite thing: Visit the Australian National Museum [I think that is the name]. While I was visiting the main exhibit was a large retrospective of the French 20th century painter, Henri Matisse. It was a dislocating experience to see paintings I knew from Philadelphia and NYC so far away from their home turf! The picture is of some totems of aboriginal design on the grounds of the museum.
