The Women’s Museum of Australia features three permanent exhibitions commemorating the achievements of Australian women to our history: Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives: First in their Field, Women at the Heart, and What’s Work Worth?  We are also responsible for researching and promoting the stories of the Old Alice Springs Gaol and we offer a program of temporary exhibitions.
