What a pleasant surprise this was. Not knowing what to expect we entered this FREE exhibition. Spent 3 hours looking at everything. A very good collection of Australian memorabilia and its movie history.

Very cool to see the progression from the early days of film to how much the moving image has changed in the past 30 years. Neat facts, displays, and equipment along with interactive exhibits too. There were a few not working including the Matrix one which was a bummer. Also, it is very dark and sometimes hard to read displays... More

It's only one floor, but this exhibit has more than enough displays and interactive pieces to fill in a few hours. It covers everything from TV, cinema and video games! You are never too young or old to visit this attraction, and the best part is that it is free.

This was my favorite museum in Melbourne since I love movies & games and there were so many interactive exhibits to discover and original film props to see. A must for everyone with kids and film lovers as well!

I only found out about the Dreamworks exhibition at my hotel and managed to squeeze in a visit. Both the exhibition and the permanent displays were brilliant, I just wish I had more time to enjoy the variety of activities on offer. Well worth it.

This is a great way to learn about the history of motion pictures from an Australian perspective. They have done a great job of presenting the entire history of how man has attempted to present a more dynamic presentation of images to static still images. They also present a unique Australian perspective which shows how this young country embraced this... More

Just as I say, you have to visit this place if you love cartoons, movies or video games. You can know the history of all of them, see how they have became day after day, and you can also play those legendary video games. It reminds me my childhood. The best part of it is totally free!
