Located in the spiritual home of Australian democracy, Old Parliament House, MoAD is a must visit destination for your next Civics and Citizenship, History and Media education school trip.
We have missed all the excited students visiting MoAD and we are so glad to once again have our doors open to students onsite.
Things are a little different, with MoAD adhering to the Australian Department of Health guidelines to protect our community from Covid-19. We have implemented procedures to ensure the safety of all staff, teachers and students and you can read more about this in our Learning COVID-19 Safety Plan.
For protocols relating to schools excursions to Canberra, refer to the Aspen Medical report - School Excursions to ACT, commissioned by National Capital Educational Tourism Project and endorsed by ACT Health Directorate
We are open to the public and taking school bookings for our programs but while MoAD was closed we took the opportunity to carry out vital conservation works in the heritage spaces and to renew two of our permanent exhibitions. These works, combined with current COVID-19 restrictions, mean that some of the elements of our onsite programs have been modified. Stay tuned to our website for more updates.
We know there were many schools who were unable to visit MoAD this year. Our free Digital Excursions bring the heritage spaces of Old Parliament House directly into the classroom.
Suitable for students K-12, these free Digital Excursions cover multiple curriculum areas.
To support teachers to continue educating students about our democracy, we have developed a range of Australian curriculum aligned resources.Subscribe: Teachers’ newsletter The Memo
