Last year The Hon Tim Fischer AC very generously donated to the Museum every tie he ever wore or was given from 1951 to 2011.
A national icon, a place of great beauty, magnificent design and historical significance, Old Parliament House is home to the Museum of Australian Democracy.
Enjoy a range of innovative exhibitions, tours and public programs that challenge and inspire. There are also special activities and spaces for children to explore. Finish your visit in one of our two beautiful cafés.
As one of Australia’s most cherished and important buildings, Old Parliament House is a great venue for conferences, events, formals, dinners and weddings.
Celebrating the spirit of Australian democracy and the power of your voice within it!
