Family trails

Explore, discover and learn with these self-guided trails.

Our family trails are a fun way to learn about Old Parliament House and our exhibitions at your own pace, with activities and challenges for everyone.

Discovery trail

Pick up a museum map at reception and follow the Discovery Trail around Old Parliament House. Complete the 7 challenges and get your map stamped in King's Hall when you finish.

Behind the Lines

Collect a family trail board at our Behind the Lines exhibition and look for the clues in the cartoons. Think about how cartoonists come up with their funny ideas.

Truth, Power and a Free Press

Use your detective skills in our Truth, Power and a Free Press exhibition. Learn about the important work journalists do and crack a code.
