Lots of things to see for all. Took us about 1 1/2 hour to walk through. Children enjoyed the cartoons and the games. There are also films you can buy tickets to see. Part of Federation Square so lot to see and eat in around the area.

Came by to visit ACMI, really insightful as you have two areas where it is FREE for entry. There are a lot of information to take in particular history of TV in Australia. Very insightful and yet fun and entertaining the same time. Sometimes there will be showcases where you have to pay to enter. I was fortunate during my... More

We went to a great exhibition here. Although a little confusing to gain entry on my walking sticks (looking for lifts) the people were very helpful on our entry. The centre offers food and shops as well as clean amenities.

Main gallery is free. Has displays on history of film, tv and video games. Most displays are interactive, there is an emphasis on local content. Free computer games to play.

From clips from all his major movies, to exhibits including scripts, costumes, posters, storyboards - this is an absolute wealth of fabulous material. Go through once to watch and look, but you must go back and read all the material for some wonderful gems. Eg a series of letters from famous people in the movie industry supporting lobbying by Scorsese... More

The Martin Scorcese exhibition at ACMI is a fabulous activity for a cold Melbourne day. The exhibition is $25 entry, but you can easily spend two hours. There are many shorts from famous Scorcese films to watch and photos and information galore. I particularly liked the history of the Scorcese family's migration to New York and could relate this to... More

Free entrance with plenty to see! There's also a paid exhibition, but we didn't go to that. One big room filled with tons of information about different aspects of film/TV. Loads of interactive activities and definitely fun. Other floors have a studio, a green room, cinemas and a cafe. Worth a visit!

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.
