Exhibitions


Victorian Archival Treasures
Discover the stories attached to rare and interesting original documents, maps and photographs from the state’s archives at Public Record Office Victoria.

Built on Gold
See the Old Treasury Building vaults which were used to store the gold bullion mined during the gold rush. The vaults now host a multimedia exhibition Built on Gold which follows the journey of Victorian gold from the diggings, as it passes through the hands of gold buyers, escort troopers and occasional bushrangers.

Growing up in Old Treasury
Experience the lives of John Maynard (the Old Treasury’s caretaker), his wife and their eight children who lived in the Old Treasury Building from 1916-1928. Walk through the living rooms of their home, faithfully recreated from family records and recollections.

JJ Clark
The Treasury Building was the first of many major government buildings designed by John James Clark. He was commissioned to design the building in 1857, at the age of nineteen.

The Governor
Australia is a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy. The Queen is formally Australia’s head of state and is represented by the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia and by a Governor in each Australian state.
