  • When we go there to think, foreigners who visit the place is not the tourist office moved to here, so I dropped in passing. Exhibition remains especially when I went to last year, there were still local school field trip. I said I got the brochures of Japan, asked the nationality when entering the last year of the no!

  • Really interesting and interactive exhibition. Not too much there, so it's not overwhelming. The large model of Canberra with audio-visual explanation alone is worth the visit.
  • Great intro to Canberra. The scale model explaining the layout and design of Canberra is fascinating. Lots of info on design and construction of Canberra. It is FREE and has Lego for the kids. This may be a temporary exhibit. Good views and has an adjoining cafe.
  • Currently, it's undergoing a revamp. The exhibitions inside are very educational. There's much to Canberra to learn about and this place is a great place to begin.
  • This is a low-key way to find out a lot about Canberra's history in a short amount of time and kick-start your visit. Extremely friendly guides are very willing to provide you with maps, directions and recommendations - do take advantage of them! :) Very popular with schools so be warned - there may be quite a few kids visiting especially if you go during school hours!
  • Gives a good feel about the local history of Canberra with great views of the lake.
