The Women’s Museum of Australia is committed to an exhibition program that recognises and celebrates women’s history in Australia, as well as telling the stories of the Old Alice Springs Gaol.
The Women’s Museum of Australia features six permanent exhibitions commemorating the achievements of Australian women to our history. We are also responsible for researching and promoting the stories of the Old Alice Springs Gaol and we offer a program of temporary exhibitions.
Our Permanent Exhibitions
Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives
An exhibition celebrating the contributions of Australian women in forging pathways for women and girls to achieve equality and excellence.
Women at the Heart
Learn about the women innovators and influencers who shaped the outback. How did they live? What did they do? How did they get here? Who were they?
What's Work Worth?
Examining relationships between work, worth and gender, short films, objects and audio installations stimulate reflection on the biases we all carry.
New Voices, New Relationships
Moving stories of women from all over the world who have made Alice Springs their home and overcome social, cultural and language barriers.
Explore the former men's and women's cell blocks and the stories they hold through interactive immersive experiences. These walls can talk!
Commemorating Australian women first in their field, 342 signatures form a patchwork of empowerment.
