A chance to explore this unusual structure
To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the iconic Shine Dome, and as part of the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival, the heritage-listed building will be open to the public on Sunday 5 May. The building is well known for its unusual structure and is sometimes referred to as the Martin Embassy. Along with opening their doors, there will also be a screening of Hidden Figures and tours of the dome.

Hidden Figures movie

With 50 years since the moon landing, as well as, the 60th anniversary of the Shine Dome, it seems only fitting that there will be a showing of the movie Hidden Figures. The award-winning movie, tells the incredible story of three brilliant and inspiring African-American women who worked at NASA, and served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn.

I arrived a just before 4pm and found the doors locked. Did I misunderstand the opening hours? It says 10am to 5pm on this page.
