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 August.

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 Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’s platform shoe and spend some time enjoying the Sounds of Australia. Test your knowledge of Australian culture with our NFSA trivia game and immerse yourself in the personal stories of NFSA experts in a truly special lifesize interactive experience.

The stories in this cosy 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!
