Melbourne Museum

Melbourne Museum

Melbourne Museum is regarded as one of the world's most modern enlightening museums.

Situated in Carlton Gardens, Melbourne Museum is an exciting and innovative attraction - including permanent and touring exhibitions, dynamic performances and events, cafes, IMAX Theatre, gift shop, and undercover parking.

Melbourne Museum explores life in Victoria, from our natural environment to our culture and history.

Highlights include a complete skeleton of a blue whale, the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, a living rainforest, the racehorse Phar Lap and an IMAX theatre on site. Major international exhibitions are presented in the Touring Hall.

A visit to Melbourne Museum offers rich and often surprising insights into life in Victoria.
