Nellie Melba Museum
The Nellie Melba Museum is an online guide to Australian-born Diva Dame Nellie Melba.
Australian born Dame Nellie Melba was an international star who conquered the opera houses of the world and ruled over them for almost 40 years.
Dame Nellie Melba was born Helen Porter Mitchell at the family home Doonside in Richmond Victoria on May 19, 1861. She was the eldest surviving daughter of David Mitchell and Isabella Ann Dow.
The Nellie Melba Museum website is based on the historic meaning of museum - Greek word mouseion, seat of the Muses, a place of study, a library. This is the first time in the world a site dedicated to Dame Nellie has been established so the website has been designed so more information about this famous Australian can be added as it comes to light.
The Nellie Melba Museum aims to establish the site as the home for all information about Melba, her family, her life, her music and her career. Because of the importance of this site, Melba's family has been approached and have endorsed the development of this project.
Anyone who has information about her that is not included on this site, is welcome to contact us. After verification, the information will be added so everyone can learn more about Australia's first famous international star.
