Hive at the National Film and Sound Archive

Galleries, Museums and Collections

A new space to explore NFSA stories is opening at the NFSA this April.

Come along to visit Hive and delve into the secrets and surprises of the NFSA collection, its people and its treasures.

Discover the untold stories of the shoes from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and spend some time with the Sounds of Australia.

Test your Australiana knowledge with our NFSA trivia game.

The stories in this space will change and be updated so there is always plenty to explore.

You told us you wanted to know more about what we do and how we look after your national collection, so Hive is dedicated to doing exactly that. Enjoy!

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
