The Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) in Ballarat opened on May 4th 2013 to a packed crowd and has since received over 45,000 visitors. M.A.D.E is a new style of museum where robust commentary and debate about contemporary issues is encouraged. It is an exciting and highly interactive museum on the physical site of the Eureka Stockade. M.A.D.E commemorates the role of the Eureka Stockade in shaping our nation and offers an opportunity for all to stand on the site where young miners stood up for their rights, and contemplate our future roles and directions. In addition to the physical museum, M.A.D.E is developing national and community education programs to further reframe the discussion on democracy, using the historic significance and spirit of Eureka to inspire a younger generation and address the changing needs of our community.
