Free entry. Walked around looking at the stands. Very interesting. Lots of people viewing as well. It is worth looking at if you are in Melbourne. Clean restrooms as well. Went back next day to view the cinema showings. Had to pay for this but it was good to see.

A great place to visit if your into the ARTS. Lots of things going on all the time with different exhibitions on display through out the year. Fed' Square ( it's nickname. ) has lots of cafe's, and places to eat. An all over favourite place of many Melbourne people or tourist who visit our town.

Loved the film museum. Loved film library where one could watch films at leisure in comfortable lounge chairs. Could spend days ...weeks..here! Great shop for purchasing rare or old film.

The Centre itself is supposedly fantastic. However, I went expecting a free museum, as it is so often advertised. Truthfully, only one exhibit is free, and the other exhibits are quite expensive. The exhibit about the history of the moving image was quite thorough and interesting, but I was a little disappointed that the Pixar exhibit was so pricey!

I visited primarily to see the Dreamworks exhibition, which I found really interesting and I loved seeing all the processes involved. After this I explored the rest of the museum and had great fun looking at pictures and props from old favourites like Skippy and Prisoner Cell Block H!

There is a current display of media and film that is free at the bottom level of ACMI that is worth an hour or more of anyone's time. There are even free computer games for all ages.

Have been quite a few times to see various exhibtions. They change regularly so plenty of reasons to keep going back. Screenworlds is also there all the time and free to have a look. There is also usually another small gallery next to it that changes all the time but that is also free. Upstairs is the cinemas, great for... More

Lots to see and do. I saw the DreamWorks Animation exhibit currently showing. The other exhibit I loved was the permanent exhibit "Screen Worlds". This is a must see. Off Federation Square in Melbourne.
