I could if stayed in all day. Loads of stuff the kids to do. Had some old school arcade and console games to bring back memories. You can get stuck into some modern games a recreate some matrix moves. Great way to waste half a day.

And it wasn't even raining! Everything you need to know about the evolution from zero, up to where we are today: through from the first flicks and silent movies and onwards, complete with one of every piece of equipment to go with the history of the movie. And TV too...even a sports segment on cricket, tastefully not referring to the... More

this place is pretty cool. they have exhibitions you just don't find anywhere else. I've been on many occasions and i'm never disappointed in what they offer. From animation, to tv, to movies, to pop stars, you name it. Check the schedule as it's changing every so often.

I was lucky enough to go to an evening reception here. I got to look around and decided that I should return with my husband and kids. There is even stuff here that teenagers might like!

Found the museum to be very interesting with its displays of film culture and being a film buff it was a must see.

First time here today for the Scorsese exhibition. Very impressed. Nice spaces here. The exhibition itself was great. Full of fascinating information which was excellently presented. I went to the same thing in NYC once, in Queens. ACMI compares very well, I think. I'm even getting used to the weirdness that is Federation Square, which while still a bit of... More

ACMI is always great for a visit when you're in the city for a day, especially when you're with people who have never been before. Recently went to the Scorsese exhibition which was brilliantly presented, a good size and reasonably priced. Have been to a few other exhibitions over the years and they've all definitely been worth it.

My wife and I always make a point to walk through and usually see a presentation or exhibit. The cinemas are excellent and curated exhibits are always great.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
