National Museum of Australia | storywall

The National Museum of Australia is the place where we come together to share stories of our unique and distinctive nation, to be part of a national conversation.

In 2011, we are creating a storywall to capture, celebrate and reflect on the experiences of the past year.

There is an onsite storywall at the Museum in Acton, Canberra, but if you can’t make it to the Museum in person you can share your story here at the online storywall.

To join the conversation and share your story simply click here

See photos of the National Museum’s onsite storywall here.
