Old and New Parliament Houses
Parliament House is the meeting place of the Australian and government officials.
It offers a dynamic experience just by visiting the building. The unique blend of impressive architecture, a stunning art collection and beautiful landscape makes Parliament House one of our nation's most important buildings.
A visit to the working building of Parliament House offers you the chance to be a part of democracy in action.
Parliament House is open to the public throughout the year, with the exception of Christmas Day.
Just across the water is the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. A living museum of social and political history, the Old Parliament House is located in a nationally listed heritage building in Parkes, Canberra.
The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House helps people to understand Australia's social and political history by interpreting the past and present and exploring the future.
