“Interesting place to have a slow walk & learn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Me & my wife visited the Melbourne museum in September 2012. We visited only the museum itself and not the other special exhibits. Spent a good 2 - 2.5 hours there, walking slowly around while learning interesting facts from the exhibits. A great great place for everyone of all ages. We dined at the cafe as well. They serve decent food (we had fish & chips and beef curry with rice) and they are quite pricey, which are expected. Enjoyed ourselves very much there.

“two day excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This place is incredible, requires lots of stamina to get through all the exhibits. It is great because exhibits are changed so you can go back and see it again. Very good displays and well worth a day out. Suitable for all ages and experiences.

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We visited the Melbourne Museum in September and had a wonderful time. Met one of the volunteers in the dinosaur exhibition. He spent a good half hour with us talking about the crocodile fossils he was excavating. Our 9 year old son was very interested and Ross gave us an experience our son will not forget. There is a great variety of exhibits in the museum - something for everyone!!

“Great Museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This place is fantastic. The kids loved it but I loved it more. I would love to come back by myself and spend a few days to soak it all in. A lot of work has gone into this place and it is well worth the visit. enjoy.
