About MoAD

Celebrating the spirit of Australian democracy and the power of your voice within it.

The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House is located inside a heritage-listed building that was once home to Australia's Parliament. 

True to our building’s original brief, we provide a ‘people’s place’, where big ideas are explored.

We share the story of Australia's democracy through exhibitions, events and education programs, as well as through our rich online collection of stories, objects and resources.
