  • We only went to see Phar Lap as it's always been something I've done on my visits to Melbourne. We had a quick look around at other exhibits and the place was really packed. 
  • We've been 3 times now but it's a great Museum in the heart of Melbourne. Worth a visit and just in Carlton with plenty of cafes nearby afterwards. 
  • Building is new and very modern. Exhibited is not only for children, such as stuffed animals of Australia's unique plants and dinosaur bones model, adults also enjoyed! Came to the students to sketch and stuffed animals.

  • Concession ticket is free. Great for us poor students. Currently the Jurassic exhibition is on, but tickets are expensive. Most importantly, you won't have enough time to see the main exhibitions already. So it is wise to skip the that one. The WWI exhibition: Love and Sorrow is the major stop of my visit. The wound of the war is reviewed with the story of eight WWI participator and witnesses. Their stories, as part of the tales of millions of family torn apart by the Great War, were heart-breaking yet thought-provoking.
  • One of the best modern educational and interactive museum that I have visited. There are always new exhibits in the museum. This is for everybody. A must go place in melbourne. One can spend a whole day learning new stuff.
  • Today 17/7/2016 I went to the museum for an awards afternoon for long service for employees of Esta. My family and I got to look around in the museum before the function it was fantastic. But the reason I am reviewing it is because I would like to congratulate the Catering section at the museum. Due to health reasons I knew the afternoon tea would be lovely but I would not be able to eat any. On the contrary I couldn't believe the wonderful selections of fresh fruits and gluten free pies, volavents and beautiful tasty sandwiches on gluten free bread! It was fantastic for someone like me who had not eaten these sort of tasty treats for so long. Congratulations on a job well done to the staff who did the catering. Thank you.
  • This is a super place to visit any time of the year. Always something new to see and learn. My daughter love the kids play area and all the exhibits. They have great cafes and other facilities too. Extremely friendly and helpful staff always make the visit super special. :)
  • I love the dinosaur bones exhibits and that everything was laid out in a logical manner, well presented. The beatiful building is a big draw for me too. Kids will absolutely love this place! I spent half a day here easily!
