An impressive, interactive museum. Free guided tour of the building was also very interesting, thanks Margaret.

Amazing to wander the old corridors of power - shame there were not more people there! Do not recommend the coffee in the "new" coffee shop unfortunately.

Would have been good if we could find a place to park! We drove around the building in ever increasing circles but had to give up in the end. If they want visitors they need to look at the problem.

We loved the tour of our old Parliament house and the stories were fun and interesting.
Allow as much time as you can cos there's plenty to do.

What a fascinating place. I could really spend at least a half day here, just viewing the wonderful architecture as well as the fascinating pieces of history. The guide (Doug) we had knew his stuff and when he didn't, was good enough to find out and get back to us with an answer. My only gripe is that it isn't well sign posted (we walked down from the new Parliament House only to find that we were on the back of the building - not good if you have older citizens or young children in your party). Thank goodness our government had the good sense to preserve, not knock down this piece of history.
