Australian History Museum
The Australian History Museum is unique in both its collection and its usage. We hold a vast collection numbering over 8,000 items reflecting Australia's history from pre-colonization to today. Our temporary and permanent exhibits showcase a sample of the significant collection, and is available for general public and group viewing.
The Museum offers visitors the opportunity to engage with the vast range of objects and sources amongst its collection as a hands-on experience of Australia's social history. We invite you to visit the Australian History Museum and discover this fascinating and enlightening collection for yourself.

The collection will be accessible again in August 2017 in the temporary location on campus (Y2). If you have an urgent request or would like to know more please email the museum manager at email@example.com.
