Australian Jazz Museum | Open

The Australian Jazz Museum is home to the largest Australian jazz collection. It is a unique wonderful and growing national treasure. All of this material is catalogued to museum standard and stored in archival conditions.

Our location is “Koomba Park” 15 Mountain Highway Wantirna Vic 3152. We’re close to the intersection of Burwood Highway and Mountain Highway.

Most areas of the Museum offer full wheelchair/walking frame access. The phone +61 3 9800 5535 and email ( are usually only answered when the museum is open.
