Background

After a two-year, $40 million redevelopment, ACMI – Australia’s national museum of screen culture – welcomes audiences to its newly transformed museum. Architecturally and digitally transformed, the new ACMI offers a brand new, 1,600sqm permanent exhibition; an investment of over $1 million into moving image art; a world first media preservation lab; state of the art education, event and cinema spaces and a new hospitality offer led by celebrated chef Karen Martini. ACMI’s architectural, programmatic and technological transformation is set to redefine the museum experience in Australia.

During a time of limitless digital and screen content, ACMI acts as a guide, taking people behind the scenes, revealing how the moving images that shape societies are made. By investing in curatorial and digital expertise in parallel, ACMI has reimagined what a museum experience can be – this is a museum curated by humans, enabled by technology, which can be accessed anywhere in the world.

Alongside new and inviting public spaces, the revitalised ACMI is anchored by a free, 1,600sqm centrepiece exhibition The Story of the Moving Image, which takes visitors of all ages on an interactive journey through the past, present and future of the moving image. Featuring over 900 objects from around Australia and the world this superbly designed exhibition is interactive and experiential.
