  • An excellent collection of books, beautiful art galleries and architecture and multiple reading/study rooms. A great place to study and relax. A must see for visitors to Melbourne.
  • This has got to be the best library I have ever seen. Not only a number of exhibits there are also many old books and literature. Architecture and Victorian furniture is amazing.
  • Beautiful building. Great place to study or catch up on some work. Lots of computers and study space.
  • Its a very good library, shame one cannot borrow books from there because its mainly a research library, but one can photocopy certain page from books. very helpful staff and wifi sometimes gives connectivity issues but can be solved from the available IT desk. Would be nice to have some more seating. but has lovely collection of books and could use some international research books. great online services though.
  • Beautiful building! Even as a tourist I enjoyed the place and found out some information about the people moving here (portrait gallery on the 2nd level). Free wifi.
