Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House
Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House Review
This museum is inside the Old Parliament House. Curators use stories of real people and events to trace the history of democracy both in Australia and abroad. The museum features five exhibits, as well as the opportunity to see the original chambers and prime minister's office. There are free 45-minute guided tours every day starting at 9:45 am, with the last at 3:45 pm. While you're in the area, take a stroll through the delightful Rose Gardens on both sides of the Old Parliament House building. Across the road from the entrance, visit the controversial Aboriginal Tent Embassy, established in 1972 to proclaim the Aboriginal people as Australia's "first people" and to promote recognition of their fight for land rights.
