National Museum of Australia information
With exhibits organised chronologically, some visitors find this museum exhilarating while others find it annoying. Exhibits focus on environmental change, Indigenous culture, national Australian icons and much more. Don't miss the introductory film, shown in the small rotating Circa Theatre . Bus 7 (weekdays) and bus 934 (weekends) run here from Civic, and the museum is also on the route of the Canberra City Explorer .
