This was an okay museum. The exhibits will cover the history of Australia Cinema up to the modern age. There are some interactive exhibits but overall I found the museum to be small and a little underwhelming.

ACMI features a range of exhibitions related to film, music and television. Some are 'blockbusters', like the David Bowie show, 2015. Others are a little more low key. Entry for major shows can be a little expensive, but there is always a free show somewhere in the complex. In addition to the exhibition areas are the cinemas, which are really... More

We travelled to Melbourne to see the David Bowie Is exhibition and it did not disappoint! I loved every minute of it, a must see for Bowie fans. We had our 3 young kids with us, and they liked the headphones and music, obviously not as interested as I was, but yes, you can take kids in!

Love this space. The cinema always has interesting movies, those not seen in local cinemas. The exhibitions are always well presented. We visited for the David Bowie exhibition, the Orrey-Kelly exhibition this month. Both outstanding. Then back again for the Writers Festival, who use this space. A definite visit when ever we go to the city.

ACMI hosts amazing exhibitions; currently the first class 'David Bowie Is' exhibition is drawing huge crowds. A few negatives about this one: it's very warm in there...but you can leave your coat in the cloakroom. Lighting is dim, which makes reading the very detailed information difficult. It gets crowded, even with timed entry. And the crowds move slowly. But: the... More

Very interesting museum of the moving image. I had no trouble spending a couple of hours watching excerpts from old Australian TV and film. And it's free!

I quite often make the time to visit ACMI when I'm in Melbourne as they really do put on some great exhibits that don't force you to over-think and don't take up too much of your time to visit. Many of the exhibitions I've been to have some great, interactive activities. I was however a little disappointed with the recent... More
