We are excited to welcome you back!
Museums exist to be open, pulsing with the excitement of visitors as they become delighted and inspired by their surroundings. That is especially true of MoAD, located as we are in the spiritual home of Australia’s democracy, Old Parliament House.
After being closed for almost three months, I am delighted to be able to announce that we're welcoming visitors back to MoAD from the 15th of June.
We’ve missed you and can’t wait to see you in person again.
From June 15th visitors will be able to enjoy Behind the Lines: The year’s best political cartoons 2019 and Truth, Power and a Free Press exhibitions, with that offering being the first in a series of exciting new and renewed spaces to open to the public in Old Parliament House over the next twelve months.
Due to current restrictions, things will be a little different than usual, but we still have our signature MoAD welcome ready for you. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is important to us and we encourage you to help us protect our community. Please book your free Exhibition Pass before you arrive to avoid a wait and if you feel unwell, please postpone your visit. We have been working hard to implement increased hygiene protocols and you can learn more about those here.
I would like to personally thank you for your on-going support and look forward to welcoming you to the museum soon. In the meantime, keep connected and #MuseumAtHome using MoAD’s website or follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
