The Royal Exhibition Building Dome Promenade, an icon of Melbourne's Victorian glory, opens its doors to a view not seen in 100 years!

Built for the 1880 Melbourne International Exhibition, the Dome Promenade was a key attraction providing visitors the opportunity to view the emerging Melbourne skyline.

Visitors can discover the history of this extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage listed building before making their way to the Dome Promenade to experience views over Carlton Gardens, the city, and greater Melbourne.

An icon unseen for 100 years.

With its origins steeped in history, the Royal Exhibition Building was built for the 1880 Melbourne International Exhibition. As a key attraction of the 1880 and 1888 international exhibitions, the Dome Promenade provided visitors a unique opportunity to overlook the gardens and view the Melbourne skyline.

This guided experience allows visitors to once again be able to experience these spectacular views along with an exhibition that explores the building's significant history and varied uses over time.

The Royal Exhibition Building is beautiful inside and out-and a true landmark of Melbourne.

Accessibility information
Tour participants will meet their tour guide at the meeting point in the Melbourne Museum foyer before travelling across to the Royal Exhibition Building.

Three levels of the exhibition (basement, mezzanine and lower promenade) are wheelchair accessible via a lift. The fourth level, the upper dome promenade, is not wheelchair accessible and requires participants to climb around 20 steps.

From there, there are additional stairs required to travel around the entire upper promenade to see a 360 degree view. Both the upper and lower promenade are outside and exposed to the elements.
