  • Still so interesting though. Worth a visit especially with family. great for young and old. Nice shop at the end. Closes at 5 to get in about 2 or 3 pm to get good value. 
  • Wanted to gain an insight into the history of immigration and was not disappointed. Well run and well thought out.

  • Another fantastic piece of this city and within the wonderful Museum Victoria family. Regular collection is fantastic then they have excellent exhibitions. Building and courtyard fantastic and adds to the feel. Must go.
  • 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 !!!
  • My most interesting museum in Melbourne and one of the most mind challenging museums ever visited. Definitely worth a visit and kudos to the polite and friendly staff running this wonderful institution.
  • High quality succinct information relating to Melbourne's history with many personal stories and easy to relate to facts.
  • Pretty nice space, the Aotearoa was OK, needed a screen and better PA though.
