Location informationNFSA Theatrette
Event costFree (bookings essential)

Discover the fascinating history behind our heritage-listed headquarters and follow the story of a Canberra landmark in this 45-minute presentation.

As the former Australian Institute of Anatomy, our building has an interesting (and sometimes disturbing) history before its current role in preserving Australia’s audiovisual heritage.

Learn about the Institute’s establishment and the building’s construction and unique Art Deco design as we reveal the secrets that make this building a rare and wonderful landmark.

This new talk will be available on the first Friday of every month.
