ACMI is a must visit for movie/TV lovers. A great insight into the history of film, and such a good variety of info on Australian TV and actors. Another great free thing to in Melbourne.

We stopped in here randomly and it was a great place to loose a couple or more hours and it was all free. Many different displays and interactions. Go enjoy it

There are some great interactive parts the kids enjoy including old school Mario brothers games but my... More

This centre was not as interactive as we'd hoped but still had some very interesting displays. Be sure to read about the artists' displays before watching them. Gift shop had some great deals!
