Once we went into the Museum, the employee immediately greeted us with a smile and started engaging with a small conversation which makes us feel welcome especially when they saw that my husband was walking with a stick. There are 3-storey, you can walk up...More

Highlight of our trip. This is a uniquely Australian museum that was so relevant in our times. Tatoo as art exhibit gave a new perspective on this art form. For kids a full engagement area.

My sister and I visited the museum with a friend who lives in Melbourne. It is a really interesting museum, that includes lots of personal stories. We liked the temporary exhibition on Samoan tattooing. My sister doesn't normally enjoy museums, but even she found it...More

It was okay and for the most part interesting. But it could be so much more. The permanent displays, those parts about immigration, could have just as easily been in a separate display within any large Australian capital city museum. Considering that this is a...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
