Yours faithfully is an interactive exhibition that invites you to rediscover the art of letter writing.

In Yours Faithfully, you can use the Museum of Australian Democracy's (MoAD) range of tools and supplies including beautifully restored typewriters and writing supplies to express your inner thoughts.

Whatever the subject and whoever the recipient, you can pop your letter in the post box located in the exhibition and MoAD will cover the postage.

In an age of pithy one liners, text messages and FaceTime, rediscover letter writing at MoAD.
