The Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) is an Australian museum, which engages visitors in the compelling story of democracy. Stories are told of the ordinary men and women, past and present, who have fought for the democratic freedoms which Australians enjoy today.Located on the historic site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade in Ballarat, M.A.D.E explores the powerful story of Eureka as a significant part of the struggle for peoples' rights in Australia and around the world. M.A.D.E commemorates the pivotal role of the Stockade in shaping Australia's democracy. This is where a group of largely young people fought injustice, and won some of the first democratic rights in the world.M.A.D.E's permanent exhibition uses innovative digital immersion to engage visitors with the questions such as, what is democracy and why do we care? Why has it been fought for, yesterday and today? What does it feel like to be without power?
