Australian History Museum

Welcome to the Australian History Museum

The Australian History Museum is unique in both its collection and its usage. We hold a vast collection numbering over 3,500 items reflecting Australia's history from pre-colonization to today.

The Australian History Museum offers the opportunity to engage with the range of objects and sources within the museum in a hands-on experience of Australia's social history.

Although the collection includes items that range from the everyday to the exquisite, material is acquired primarily for its value to teaching and research. Offering educational programs for students at primary, secondary and tertiary levels to enhance their understanding and insights into Australia's rich history and to create a meaningful educational experience for all students.

We invite you to visit the Australian History Museum and discover this fascinating and enlightening collection for yourself.
