“Great attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Free and fun. Downstairs their are three free galleries with exhibitions but the hands on history of the moving image is great. Various artefacts support the clips of film history. Very thorough. Then they Have a sensory area with 3-D, Matrix motion capture, animation, shadow puppets. It's all hands on. The is a whole section on gaming with the games for you to play and a future section. It's all with an Aussie spin and the representation area was great, I had no idea just how involve Australia was.

“Captured my imagination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I took visiting O/Sea's relatives to visit the Aust Centre for the moving Image, during a day out in Melbourne. A must see for tourists and Melbournians alike. I thought it would just be good for the "visitors" to our fair city but it certainly captured my interest too.

“Great place to explore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Love the interactive spaces here, new exhibitions and great place to visit for the whole family. Many of the general spaces are free so great if the budgets a bit tight.

“Excellent hands on Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

While the exhibition/museum has been going for quite a while in the ACMI building, I always find something new with the kids every time we visit. Its great fun, but younger kids may find some sections a little disturbing (weird noises and images). Its a great collection of Australian "things" associated with very famous movies and TV shows - definitely worth a visit - AND ITS FREE!
