Comments form

This site is intended to encourage exploration and analysis of the issues presented. We welcome your participation.

This section will function like Letters to the Editor in a newspaper. Please send us your memories, thoughts, ideas, comments and opinions. We will select a wide range of your comments to publish here.

Any comments received may be published unless you explicitly indicate that they are not for publication. The National Museum of Australia reserves the right to edit comments. We will publish your first name, your state and the date of the comment, unless you explicitly indicate that you would like us to publish your full name, title etc.

See the FAQs for more information on Comments.

You may want to use your real name, or a first name and state, or first name and profession, or a description like 'Concerned', or 'Former Freedom Rider'

We'll only use this email address to contact you if we need to clarify an aspect of your comment.

I understand that ticking this box means that I agree that the National Museum of Australia may publish this comment on its website, that the Museum will not publish comments it deems in any way offensive and that the Museum may edit the comment for reasons of space or clarity, but will not alter the meaning or intent of the comment.
