Melbourne Museum

Located close to the CBD in Carlton Gardens, the Melbourne Museum is a renowned natural and cultural history museum. Situated adjacent to the UNESCO-listed Royal Exhibition Building, the museum was opened in 2000 as a project of the state government of Victoria and attracts tens of thousands of visitors annually. Most notably, the museum houses some of Victoria's State Collections, which encompasses over 17 million items, and the remains of Australia’s most famous racehorse. You’ll also find lots of exciting travelling exhibitions and an IMAX theatre!

 

Melbourne Tram Museum

The Melbourne Tram Museum is truly a piece of moving history that tracks (pun intended) the heritage of the world’s largest tram network, a record the city still holds today. Located at 8 Wallen Road, Hawthorn (the old Hawthorn Tram Depot) this museum focuses on the preservation and display of Melbourne’s tramway history - from the early horse-drawn vehicles to the modern trams you know today. Discover a range of exhibits, ex-rolling stock on display and heritage railway and tramway equipment. A visit to the Melbourne Tram Museum is the perfect gift idea for any tram lover!

 

Immigration Museum in Melbourne

The Immigration Museum was originally opened back in 1998 with the purpose of documenting and tracing the immigration experiences of non-Indigenous Australians. Here you’ll find a discovery centre, community gallery and public and educational programs, including community festivals and exhibitions. The Immigration Museum catalogues and displays over 6,000 objects which document the migration experiences of Victorians dating to the 1830s. As one of the world’s most multicultural cities, a visit to the Immigration Museum is a must for locals and visitors curious about Melbourne’s constantly changing face.
