The Melbourne Story: Exhibition

The Melbourne Story: ExhibitionThe Melbourne Story: Exhibition

The Melbourne Story is an exhibition that explores Melbourne's unique and changing tale in The Melbourne Story at Melbourne Museum.

What shaped this city? Who lived here? What were their lives like?

The Melbourne Story is packed with icons of the city's past and present. There are tales of heroes and scoundrels, growth and decline, and the changing ways Melburnians live, work and play. Big stories-of Aboriginal activism, of gold that built grand buildings, of waves of migration-sit alongside quieter tales of everyday life in the big smoke.

Ride in a restored Luna Park Big Dipper carriage, step into workers' houses from the 1890s and hear the sounds of Melbourne's music scene. See how where you live evolved from traditional Kulin lands to the suburbs of today. Over 1200 irreplaceable objects from Victoria's state collections show that Melbourne is truly a city of stories.
Be immersed in evocative stories and discover the icons and personalities that have shaped Melbourne.

The Melbourne Story features more than 1200 collection objects from Museum Victoria's collection, making it the most complete and object-rich exhibition about Melbourne ever staged.
