  • -YOU ARE HERE-green coloured dot needed for Map to eliminate delays in Fire Evacuation ----------Due to poorly designed Melbourne’s Chinatown – Chinese Museum Fire Evacuation Map. At first glance, there are so many red arrows on the maps, but it is difficult to read the map to identify my current location on the map in order to ascertain the optimal route of escape in the event of a fire. Please order new maps with clear design (-YOU ARE HERE-green coloured dot needed for Map) to be implemented at Melbourne’s Chinese Museum for the safety of locals and tourists alike. Imagine your loved ones and their friends are visiting the museum and a fire broke out which resulted in them being burned to death because of this.
  • GREAT place to learn about Melbourne's connection to the Chinese community and the immigration experience. We do this museum once a year. The kids love it. Make sure you start in the basement and work your way up.
  • If you want to know Chinese, go there. You can find what you want.
  • Worth a visit ... Great place to understand the melbounian Chinese connection.
  • Provides a glossy perspectives of the Chinese migrants to Victoria. Check out the immigration museum too if you are interested.
