National Library of Australia

The National Library always has something going on for families. From free tours, to a dedicated children’s space to special school holiday activities and programs, there is a constantly changing calendar of events and exhibitions.

Explore more than 180 prints, engravings, paintings, drawings and artists’ tools in our current exhibition, A Nation Imagined: The Artists of the Picturesque Atlas. Our knowledgeable volunteer guides highlight how the art of the Atlas shaped understandings of Australian settler-colonial history and ways of life.

Groups are welcome, a minimum of two weeks’ notice is required for groups of 10 or more people.
