National Museum of Australia - venues

National Museum of Australia

Enjoying one of the best locations in Canberra right on the water's edge, The National Museum of Australia is a venue with a spectacular difference.

Opened in 2001, the museum boasts stunning architecture and magnificent mountain, lakeside and city views. Sweeping decks, expansive windows and imposing indoor and outdoor spaces make the Museum a highly versatile and dynamic function venue for any occasion.

The Museum’s Hall provides a stunning space that requires minimal event themes. Guests can enjoy the unique experience of mingling among grand treasures from the Museum’s collection. High ceilings, curved walls and customised lighting add to the drama of the space.

Additional event spaces such as the Burley Griffin Room, the Hall Bay Window and the Peninsula Room are not only gorgeous event spaces but they all feature lake view frontage that remains unmatched in Canberra and is perfect for your next practical day conference or impressive evening event.

As winners of the ACT Caterer of the Year for two years in a row, Broadbean Catering prides itself on creating thoughtfully contemporary menus that reflect the freshness of the season.
