  • Awesome visit. Really friendly staff.
  • Caught the Walter Burley Griffin exhibition which was really interesting both architecturally, artistically and from a town planning point of view. There are some interesting things to see, but it's probably not for everyone. I enjoyed looking through some of the historical photos being displayed.
  • It's interesting to be able to find odd news articles about Australia's past. It is also a good starting point to research Canberra's history, or your own.
  • Good galleries though not many. Great service.
  • Need to go during the week. For some reason its open on Sunday but the main area, the reading room is closed. This is where you can search the archives. Go figure!
