The National Capital Exhibition is regarded as the perfect spot for visitors to start their visit to the National Capital. It is both educational and informative.
The expanded, renovated Exhibition features interactive displays, laser models and innovative audio visual demonstrations.
It tells the powerful story of the making of the National Capital, from aboriginal occupation to the arrival of european settlers. It takes the visitor through the controversial selection of the Limestone Plains site nearly 100 years ago, Walter Burley Griffin's unique design and traces Canberra's rapid growth into one of the worlds truly great landscaped cities.
