Party Games

Can board games teach us about democracy and how it works? 


King's Hall

Our collection of board games explores some serious ideas while being seriously fun to play. In this pop-up exhibition, see a rare chess set with Bob Hawke and Malcolm Fraser as the kings, a crowdfunded 'card game for political tragics' and a game created as a birthday present for Labor senator John Faulkner. 

Head to our cafe to play some of them and put your strategy and political trivia to the test.
