Take a trip down our political memory lane in our latest video profiling the Museum of Australian Democracy situated in Old Parliament House, which is celebrating its 90th birthday.
Australia has a young but proud democratic history, which is on show day-in, day-out at Canberra’s Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD). Opened at Canberra’s Old Parliament House in 2009, the Museum houses old and new exhibitions and heritage listed areas such as the chambers, King’s Hall and the Prime Minister’s office.
MoAD’s Head of Heritage, Exhibitions and Engagement, Edwina Jans is passionate about exploring the importance of democracy through the political moments that shaped our country.
