Connections / Mura Gadi: archives, people, place

Discover intriguing stories from Australian history, then choose your own exploration pathway on our interactive digital wall. There are hundreds of tales and hidden secrets to uncover, including answers to the fundamental questions: ‘How did a pigeon save the life of a lighthouse keeper?’, ‘Do lesbians really have more fun?’ and ‘Are potatoes a cure for all ills?’

Voices / Dhuniai: Federation, democracy and the Constitution

Take a journey through the history of the Australian Constitution and the rights and freedoms it guarantees. How was it written, and how can it be updated to reflect changing times and attitudes? The exhibition also embraces dialogue about the troubled history of constitutional discrimination against First Australians and historical and ongoing attempts to create change.
