Lonely Planet review

Set in a delightful art deco building, this archive preserves Australian moving-picture and sound recordings for posterity. The Sights + Sounds of a Nation exhibition is great to visit if the place is quiet, but incredibly frustrating when it's busy, as there is no soundproofing around the audiovisual exhibits. There are also temporary exhibitions, talks and film screenings in the Arc Cinema . Teatro Fellini Café serves coffee and simple lunches in the internal courtyard.
