Australian National Museum of Education – 25 years and moving forward!
Last year the Australian National Museum of Education (ANME) celebrated 25 years of collecting the material culture, stories and objects from Australia’s educational history. Founded in 1996 this national network of school museums brings together material held in communities across Australia. Located at the University of Canberra, as well as holding and extensive collection of photographs, ephemera, text books, journals and artifacts, the ANME offers opportunities for in-depth research into the history of education.
While we had planned to visit in 2021, circumstances conspired against us! Join your colleagues for a belated anniversary celebration and discover this national museum, possibly for the first time. Museum Director Dr Malcolm Beasley AM and some of the Museum's Work Integrated Learning students will provide an informative talk and tour. There will be an opportunity to view the current exhibition, Glimpses From The Past: Early Schooling in Australia. Before and after enjoy a few drinks and delicious snacks in the Students Lounge nearby.
