Museum of Democracy

Canberra, Australia

Canberra is in Australia’s Capital Territory; it is where you’ll find the capital of Australia!

The Museum of Democracy, or Old Parliament Building, is a must visit as it explores Australia's political history.

From 1927 to 1988, the Museum of Democracy housed the Australian Parliament! But, in 2009, it was re-opened as the Museum of Democracy. 

Within the Museum of Democracy, you will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of exhibits that document the history and future of democracy in Australia and the world. 

For sixty-one years, the Australian Government worked out of this building. The history that surrounds it is impressive, to say the least. Within the museum, you have free reign to walk the halls where Australian history was created, visit the Old House of Representatives and Senate, see the Prime Minister's office, and other offices and rest areas that were once off limits to the public. 

A small fee is required to enter the museum and paid parking is within close proximity!

Visit their official website to help plan your visit!
