Could have been better as many of the interactive exhibits were not working. Some interesting exhibits such as the Mad Max car.

We visited for the "DreamWorks Animation" exhibition (which was awesome), but the ACMI is worth a visit at any time. Entry is free and there are so many things that you can get "hands on" with. It is very educational (which explains the school groups) and there are fantastic displays from early film, radio and television right through to modern... More

I recently went to the Dreamworks Exhibition at ACMI. I have previously been to another exhibition here - Tim Burton - and both times have really enjoyed my experience. I love how much stuff is shown in the exhibits - you see both original artworks, models, pre works and basically everything you can imagine. There were videos and interactive parts,... More

I went with a friend a few weeks ago and we had a blast. It's very interactive, so great for kids and adults. Although there is one gallery you have to pay for (if you want), the whole down stairs is free entry!

Incredible collection of moving image equipment, displayed brilliantly, could spend hours and hours looking at and trying things out. The special exhibition by Dreamworks is not to be missed.

A funky offbeat look at the way we live, move, interact and react to our world and technology through the moving image. Always great and the special themed exhibitions are always worth a visit. It has more than meets the eye on first glance and is well worth an immersion rather than a quick flick.

It is well set up with a lot to do for the kids. A little pricey for a family given it is not a large facility. Nice place if you are keen on movie stuff and cartoons
