The Johnston Collection


The Johnston Collection

The Johnston Collection is the legacy of William Johnston, an antique dealer and collector who left his estate to the people of Victoria for their education and enjoyment.

The collection ranges from the 17th to the 19th century and has great strengths in Georgian, Regency and Louis XV furniture, Empire and decorative arts.

It is no ordinary museum with roped off exhibits, but presents an astonishing and diverse collection arranged in the English Country House Style.

The collection is the legacy of William Robert Johnston, an antique dealer and collector of beautiful things. He loved objects that were unusual and visually arresting. He had a sharp eye for the beauty created by the harmonious balance of line and form. He delighted in arranging objects together to create extraordinary interiors. It is pure indulgence to be amongst the Collection.

The W R Johnston Trust was established in 1986 to preserve and develop this unique collection.

A booking is essential to visit the collection.

To contact us please telephone: (03) 9416 2515

TO PROTECT THE PRIVACY AND PARKING RIGHTS OF MR JOHNSTONíS RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBOURS, WE ARE NOT PERMITTED BY OUR PLANNING PERMIT TO PUBLISH THE ADDRESS OF THE MUSEUM.

On the day of the appointed visit, visitors will be collected from the foyer, near the Yarra Room of the Hilton on the Park Hotel (Wellington Parade, near the Fitzroy Gardens). Visitors are brought to the Johnston Collection in a minibus operated by our staff.

This arrangement is due to planning permit stipulations but adds a little intrigue to your visit that we hope you enjoy.
