“a surprise awaits”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

If you think that this small venue has nothing to offer then wait until you walk in the door. You will be very pleasantly surprised and in fact you will find that most things in Canberra fit into perspective once you are here.

“An overview of our Capital City”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

This is the second place to go - after Mount Ainslie - to obtain an overview of Canberra. It is constantly updated to reflect the time we live in and the past.

“Good for adults with an interest in history”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

A good vantage point to view the lake, and the history of Canberra exhibition is actually very interesting and informative. Thank heavens some of the other designs were not chosen!

“An interesting exhibition for an out of town visitor”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

It's good to take visitors here - they will get a better idea of what Canberra is about and see what Walter Burley Griffin did for our capital. There's a pleasant view from the coffee shop also.
