  • A nice place to stop on our bike ride around the lake. Lego for the kids to play with and some fascinating information about Canberra.
  • It's is now the tourist information center. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Public bathrooms and small cafe available on site. Nice view of the lake and of the city.
  • Should visit first when visiting Canberra , It tells you the story of how Canberra came to be. An hour or so well spent.
  • I was quite surprised with this little out of the way museum. It was interesting to see the other entries for the design of Canberra and the kids area is filled with lego! That of course my kid loves.
  • Beautiful centre with a lot to show, ready to engage all ages and all members of the family
