100 years of Australian film and sound
The exhibition gallery is showing a fascinating interactive exhibition covering 100 years of Australian film, television, radio and recorded sound. Through video compilations and touch screen programs, visitors can discover the stories of the people who have created the sights and sounds of our imagination over the past century — amateurs and professionals, actors, writers, inventors, directors, radio personalities, opera singers and more.
Take an exciting journey through Australia’s screen and sound history with our experienced presenters. The whole family can check out Archive Alive — Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 3pm, free of charge. This is a fabulous introduction to some of our national audiovisual treasures. Bookings essential for groups of 25 or more on (02) 6248 2000.
Pause and Play is our special, free, hands-on exhibit for kids aged 3-9. You can draw your very own film strip, have a go at making a thaumatrope or find out about a musical instrument you have never heard of. Check out the family tree of film and sound and see some of the audiovisual equipment that your parents or even your great grandparents would have used.
