I've always enjoyed walking around ACMI. The building is incredible before you even get in. The (usually) free exhibitions range from architecture to TV, to rock stars and cartoon characters. There are many amazing shows to attend. I've also used this place as a venue before and it's a great location for events.

I went here on a rainy day in May and it was a great. At the time I went, there was an animation exhibition which was fascinating and great for kids (I didn't go with kids but I was an Au Pair at the time and am currently studying Primary Education and working with children).

Don't go here if you are looking for peace and quiet and a deep sense of reflection ... but if you want to know everything there is to know about the history and development of the art of film and television in Australia, this is the place. Its a place of total engagement, using a variety of display styles that... More

There are several building built little bit of out of the box and people tend to come to see the odd shapes for couple of minutes. Not the best place in the town but good for a walk by.

We were unable to access the full facility the day we went and whilst it would hold a lot of interest for those technically minded it was not for us being more classical in taste.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
