MoAD (Museum of Australian Democracy)

The Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) is located in the spiritual home of Australian democracy – Old Parliament House.

At MoAD we engage and inform young citizens, empowering them to use their voice and agency.

Onsite programs

In undertaking our programs Students:

• bring history to life and consider the important role they have in helping to shape our democracy

• explore exhibition content through an interactive trail experience and visit a historic parliamentary chamber

• participate in inquiry-led discussions and collaborative learning to make connections between our democratic past and their role as global citizens

Facilitated programs are eligible for the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate; see

All programs MUST be booked in advance and final numbers confirmed to support staffing ratios on the day of your visit

Digital Excursions

Delivered direct to your classroom or individual devices, our digital excursions allow students to investigate their role in our democracy by exploring historic spaces, participating in engaging interactive activities and developing their critical thinking and historical inquiry skills.
