Making a Better World? – Museum Exhibit

The National Museum of Australia is proud to award a special prize to the winner of the museum exhibit category.

To start the thinking on this year’s theme of Making a Better World?, we encourage students and teachers to visit our Defining Moments website

Here you can explore a list of 100 defining moments that have had a profound impact on the lives of Australian people. Select a moment of interest and consider whether it was a Triumph, a Tragedy, or had elements of both. Students may like to investigate and respond to the impact of groundbreaking politician Gough Whitlam, or the influence of Queen Elizabeth ll as seen through the lens of her 1954 visit. The choice is yours.

More information and detailed tips on creating a Museum Exhibit are available here.

We will display the winning entry in the Museum’s Main Hall over the summer.
