Museum opens new gallery

Share Canberra's trusted news:

THE National Museum of Australia has a new permanent gallery, open to the public this month.
“Landmarks: People and places across Australia,” has been designed by Cunningham Martyn, of Melbourne, to look  at 10 big themes, asking how people have engaged with landscapes, flora, fauna, and technologies to build distinctive communities.
And the objects? Phar Lap’s heart, a 15.2-tonne excavator bucket from Mount Tom Price, the Holden No.1 prototype, and a shell-covered sculpture of the Opera House. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
“Landmarks invites visitors to discover how every place has a past, and how that past that shapes our present and future,” says curator Kirsten Wehner.
