This is a good place to visit if you are passing Fed Square and have some time to kill. Pop in for a quick visit to see what they have. We popped in quickly and looked around for 30/45 mins. It was interesting, free to visit.

I went to ACMI to see the free exhibition. It was brilliant and it had so much information to take in. You seriously need to put aside a day to thoroughly see everything it had to offer. I had a good look around and you can take photos of exhibits but you have to turn your flash off.

Went to the V&A touring exhibition on David Bowie. You need to book and you'll need about 3 hours to take it all in. Excellent exhibition covering the whole of his career, with loads of materials - original costumes, original lyric sheets, films, background info. Tour enhanced by an excelled personal audio guide (included in the ticket price) which very... More

My friend and I were encouraged by family and friends to visit the David Bowie Exhibition while on a visit to Melbourne . My X-Gen daughter is a very long time fan of Bowie which surprises me because he is exactly the same age as her Dad. In fact I have a photo of her at 6 months pausing to... More

I was originally afraid that ACMI would turn out to be just another one of those 'run-of-the-mill' museums, but it was far from! ACMI contains an immense amount of genuinely interesting activities and exhibits. My particular favourite was the exhibit surrounding film. There was such attention to detail as well as some very unique items! You really cannot ask for... More
