Your Right to Information

On 1 July 2010 new right to information legislation came into effect, replacing the former freedom of information law.

The new law:

  • creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government

  • encourages government agencies to proactively release government information.

 If you have any queries regarding access to information about the Museum, please contact the Right of Information Officer on 9217 0576.
