About the exhibition

At the height of World War II, a seven-hour German bombing raid destroyed Britain’s House of Commons Chamber, and damaged Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. Relics from the attack were donated to Australia in 1942 by the United Kingdom for installation in Australian Parliament House.

To commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the bombing, you can see the relics and hear about their significance as part of our building tours.
