“Next time you are in Federation Square...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Go and take a look at the ACMI, as in between the displays and film showings it is an interesting place to go and have a good look around and learn about Australia's - and other place's - historical and current films, video, and games.

“Fun and interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I went there this morning and we lost the time. There are three galeries. One is permanent and is about games, television and movies. It is very interesting. The other two change from period to period and until March 2013 they will place two very good expositions. Worth the time!

“Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

My girlfriend and I came here on our first day in Melbourne and were quite disappointed that they had already closed (the staff closed the escalator down right in front of us :[ ). And then we came back again on our last day in Melbourne.. It was great! Though we wish we could have stayed a little longer..

The Screen World is completely free and the exhibition is amazing! Pretty much whatever you can ask for if you're interested in media (tv, internet, video games, movies etc). Even my girlfriend thought this would be a great place to go on a date (not sure if other girls would agree on this). Definitely worth the visit! It is located just a straight road down from Flinders Street train station.

“Always Something”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you love film you'll love this. Theres always something cool to see at ACMI. Check out their website to see what movies are showing. There's always something foreign or culty. The displays are very cool including props from pirates of the caribbean or costumes from Tim Burtons films. This place is good for kids, I'd definitely recommend it.

“Nostalgia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I enjoyed seeing footage from old movies and TV shows that I remember from years ago. Seeing other items such as costumes, props and Oscars added to the interest. Tracing the development of film through the old equipment was also interesting.

Unfortunately a number of the exhibits were out of action which was a pity in a place which seems to want to encourage interactivity. I also thought it was not well laid out. The sound from some exhibits spilled over into other exhibits, and the flow of the story of moving image was not always clear. This museum has so much interesting stuff in it, it just needs better organisation.
