  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Good displays with plenty of interesting detail on the history of Canberra - Lego for the kids and tourism information, all for free.
  • 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.
