Happy and Glorious

Happy and Glorious

The Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) at Old Parliament House presents Happy and Glorious - an exhibition dedicated to The Queen’s Visit in 1954.

Old Parliament House was central to the royal tour while the Queen was in Australia and the exhibition is presented in the very room the Queen used while she was at Old Parliament House. You can explore this room in the President of the Senate’s suite and see how it was redecorated and furnished for her private use while she was in the house.

Memories of a young Queen in summer dresses and ball gowns, crowds of Australians excitedly waving flags and charming tableaus spelling out heartfelt messages are shown through a series of photographs and objects.

Visit this snapshot in time at the Happy and Glorious exhibition by booking a general museum pass to MoAD.
