The National Capital Exhibition tells the story of Canberra, Australia's National Capital. The exciting scale model of the National Capital brings both Walter Burley Griffin’s design and the modern city into sharp focus for students.
Students are introduced to the story of Canberra, including mapping and the search for a site for the city. They engage with Griffin’s design and the city of today. Then, in a creative drawing activity, they add their own ideas for our National Capital. Through the exciting interactive multilingual displays the National Capital Exhibition illustrates Canberra's role as a symbol of Federation. Discover the people, events, history and design which contributed to the development of this uniquely planned city.
The National Capital Exhibition is gateway to other great attractions in the National Capital, including Blundells Cottage, Anzac Parade, The National Carillion, Old Parliament House Gardens and Reconciliation Place.
