Guided tours

Discover more about the Library and our exhibitions by taking a free guided tour.

We offer a range of tours of the heritage reading rooms and permanent and temporary exhibitions. Tours are conducted by staff and volunteer guides.

If there's only a few of you wanting to join a tour, there's no need to book. Some tours do have limited numbers. If you're with a larger group of eight or more, you'll need to book in advance by emailing or calling 03 8664 7099.

All tours leave from the foyer.

If you can't visit us onsite at the Library, take our 360° online interactive tour and see the Library at your own pace from your computer or mobile device.
