  • Lots of great exhibits about the history of Melbourne. Good way to spend half a Saturday. Educational and not too big. Friendly staff and interesting displays.
  • 'Every one's identity is unique and precious' is the theme of immigration museum! Efforts were made to show Australia welcomes and respects all ethnicities and allows them to continue preserving their culture along with its own! Unity in diversity
  • We were made to feel as unwelcome as the immigrants they displayed in the museum, firstly by refusing me (as a teacher) entry with my students as I didn't have a "teacher's card", which doesn't exist for ESL teachers, and refused to accept my teaching certificate as proof, nor the fact that I had students with me (all with student cards from my institute). Both members of staff we spoke to were belligerent, and wasted precious excursion time (over ten minutes of making us feel like we'd made a mistake, even after we showed them on the website that it mentions teachers are allowed to enter with their students for free, and after making a prior booking).
  • I was in a good mood. Then I went to Immigration Museum. Then, I got the bad mood.
  • Fascinating history of Australian immigration - in a very well presented exhibition. Go see
