National Museum of Australia: New Centre for Children

Arterial won the opportunity to design and develop a new centre at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra, which will open its doors to children and their carers in early 2020. The new centre connects children with stories and objects that represent the full facet of the Museum’s collection. The design offers a voyage of discovery for children, where they can explore, have fun and learn through play. As well as an innovative play space, there is a mini makers space that offers changeable creative learning opportunities for young audiences and a programmable workshop space designed for older children and visitors of all ages. Hear from the designers and the NMA team about the vision for their innovative project.
