The exhibit was fascinating in depicting all aspects of the process to producing a Dreamworks film, from first sketches through storyboards and modeling plus composing and performing the film score. Also, the museum houses an excellent exhibit of the history of film-making and visual media, with a focus on Australian contributions to the film industry.

ACMI has a few good permanent exhibitions like the one with video games you can play - if you visit Melbourne with kids or teenagers this is a great place to stop... And the location is great - right in the middle of the city

We have been years ago, but I'd forgotten what a gem the ACMI is! GREAT indoor activity for when it's too hot or cold or wet to be outside. There are paid exhibits but so much of it is free, you are guaranteed to have fun! We only had about an hour and a half, and it was no where... More

In the heart of Melbourne on Federation Square is ACMI and if you are into visual art then this is the place. It has hands on exhibitions, a cinema which shows new 35MM film cuts of old film titles check out there web site for "whats on". There is something for every person in the family.

Here you can also visit the Dreamworks Animation exhibiton... More

Went and saw the Dream Works Exhibition and spent about 2 hours looking, listening and learning about the history and how they worked. Fascinating!
