A visit to the National Archives connects students with pivotal moments in 20th-century Australian history.

Our educator-led programs are linked to the Australian Curriculum and focus on inquiry, investigation and discovery. The programs draw on objects, photographs and key documents such as the Australian Constitution to engage students with our collection.
