Cool place to visit with kids to give them a perspective of how ad why Canberra is where it is. Lots of cool little activities for the kids to do as well.
This is the place to go if you want to learn about how Canberra became a city. It also offers great views of the lake. AND there's Lego!
The info and explanation added by the light display on the model of Canberra really tell you the background to the place and is very interesting.

This free attraction is situated overlooking the lake. It chronicles the start of Canberra's design and construction. Perhaps more could be said of Walter Burley Griffin, but the various displays are fascinating. There are Lego toys for kids, seating for parents and a coffee shop for those who need regular sustenance. Parking is convenient and free on weekends.

This was the first attraction that we visited and it ia a great olace to start as the display gives a good overview of the development of Canberra.
