Open House Melbourne

 

Each year, Parliament House takes part in Open House Melbourne. Visitors are guided through Queens Hall, onto the floor of the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council chambers and then into the Parliamentary Library. They see first hand where Victoria’s laws are made and hear the fascinating history of the building. They find out how Parliament House has adapted to remain a working building used for the same purpose for which it was built in 1856.
