Come behind the scenes and get hands-on with historical audiovisual equipment in our beautiful Art Deco building. Learn about the history of film and sound in Australia and put your own spin on a Zoetrope animation.

Explore our collection of over 4 million items, interact with expert curators and conservators and experience the inner workings of the NFSA for a day. You’ll also get to see our Australians & Hollywood exhibition in a new light! 

You will also receive a FREE ticket to a school holiday film screening of your choice! You will receive a code to book your free screening online or you can present your workshop ticket at reception on the day of the film.
