Exhibition bookings now open
Be the first to experience the new ACMI with your students.
Discover how inventors, innovators and artists have been wielding light, splitting time and capturing motion in a technological revolution that continues today.
Each of our new exhibition's five sections frames a major moment in moving image history, including the origins and future of cinema, production design and the creative process, Australian culture and stories, the rise of videogames, and how screens inform, influence and empower us.
Punctuated by moving-image maker moments, these stages come to life through interactive experiences that let students animate shadows, craft optical toys, experiment with time, assemble film scenes and create soundscapes in a custom Foley studio.
To help you plan for 2020, bookings are now open for self-guided visits to our new exhibition starting from Monday 18 May 2020.
Our film, workshop, and talk program will be on sale in early 2020.
Please note all school visits must be booked in advance.
