The range of exhibits in the venue were very good and there's definitely enough to do for free. But we'd gone specifically to check out the Wallace and Gromit collection. Again there was a good selection of props and information about the development of the...More

As someone who watches a ton of movies, I found this museum really interesting. There's a free exhibition on the history of film in Australia, and about its development internationally. Unfortunately, the Aardman exhibition wasn't open when I visited, but I'm hoping to go back...More

I went to the Wallace and Gromit exhibition. It was brilliant. So well set out. So much information. There are other exhibits at ACMI and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys films.

My daughter and I went to this amazing exhibition recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The people behind this are so talented, such intricate work to bring all these lovable characters to life. Wallace & Grommit, Shaun the Sheep and all the other characters are just...More

It gets crowded at ACMI during school holidays, especially when there is an exhibition like this. To start with, we photographed each other in Wallace's chair, but declined the opportunity to make our own claymations. To see the actual models of rooms, sets, the pirate...More

So many things to take in here! Kids loved to wander and experience. We only had an hour, so we did not get to see everything, but well worth a visit.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

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
