“Discover our past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

It is fascinating to see how jammed packed upon each other all the pollies were before the new parliament house was built. A trip back into the past. Lots of information on democracy with interactive displays. Lovely building - the rose garden outside is worth a visit too.

A very interesting and well chronicled display of Australia's political history. Should be compulsory for all Australians!
