Homes+ (Australia) - - TRAVEL+ -

Although Can­berra is gen­er­ally sunny dur­ing win­ter, it does have its grey days… luck­ily it’s home to some of Aus­tralia’s best mu­se­ums and gal­leries. The most well known of these are the Na­tional Gallery of Aus­tralia (nga.gov.au) and the Aus­tralian War Memo­rial (awm.gov. au) – both have had up­grades in re­cent years. The Na­tional Por­trait Gallery (por­trait.gov.au) and the Na­tional Mu­seum of Aus­tralia (nma. gov.au) of­fer a more mod­ern ap­proach to art and his­tory. For po­lit­i­cal buffs, both old and new Par­lia­ment House can eas­ily be vis­ited, and for some­thing dif­fer­ent, at Can­berra Glass­works (can­ber­ra­glass­works. com), you can see ex­hi­bi­tions and watch artists blow­ing glass.
