Peril in the Parliament

Peril in the Parliament

A brand new Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) experience for groups – part whodunit, part riddle room at Old Parliament House after dark!

Located in the House of Representatives Chamber, Peril in the Parliament - the Silent Speaker will flex your detective and teamwork skills while you solve puzzles and earn clues.

As the chamber doors close behind you, and the sands begin to trickle through the hourglass, you must work together to identify a killer - before it's too late!

Group bookings by arrangement for a minimum of 8 people.

Feel free to don 1930s garb - or not, as you prefer.
