Dive into the past with ‘Poster’s through time’ where we will explore posters from the national archival collection and unveil the stories that they tell.

Each poster is not just an eye-catching visual but can also tell a compelling narrative of its era and offer insights into the cultural, social, and political landscapes of Australian history.

What stories can they tell, or secrets do they shed on events of the time?

From stirring propaganda to iconic advertisements, join us for an unforgettable journey through time to look at a selection of posters from the national archival collection and find out more about the stories attached to them.
