Children's exhibition at the Museum of Australian Democracy explores human rights

Children have taken control of an exhibition space at Canberra's Old Parliament House, as part of a new program giving them the freedom to play and explore the issue of human rights.

The Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) spent months consulting with children about what they wanted in their own dedicated space.

The result was the museum's new Play Up exhibition with a focus on human rights, including chalkboards, building blocks and a graffiti wall sprawled across a large, colourful space.
