  • It is necessary to visit this museum if you want to delve into the history of Australia, its origins and how it developed its society evolved to the present day! Important space dedicated to the contribution made by the Italian immigrants!

  • A great way to research family migration into Victoria. Very helpful staff. Excellent information. Would highly recommend as a place of great interest. 
  • Immigration Museum. Pics, stories ... not of interest, not a number. Suitable for elementary school students, but it is annoying for larger ...

  • Staff was very firiendly and helpful!! Beautiful place, a lot of history and good information, price is fine, better if you get a combo with a workshop or something. I went to a cocktail one which was pretty fun and night entry to the museum on a Friday. Totally recommend. Plus there was some food/drink stalls at the garden and live music! Great combo experience !!!
  • If you visit 5 places in Australia, this should be one of them. My favourites are the journeys that the immigrants had to carry out over the past few journeys. The old ship cabins make it all too real.
  • What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon with the family. Lots to see and do, but not so much it takes the whole day. Try it out during the coming school holidays, you won't be disappointed.
  • Nice place to visit to understand about Immigration history. I like video presentation about how people feel akward at the beginning but later on their reactions change as they settle in Australia.
  • An interesting and interactive museum that takes you through the history of integration in a country that was made great by it.
