A lovely example of neo-classical architecture in Melbourne. The reading room is the most impressive room with a beautiful domed shaped ceiling.

When I was told we are going to see a library, I could've never imgained a public library of that great standard and size! Being a Londoner, I am used to excellent public libraries, but I was still in awe of it. There are some free performances in the library (just outside the study hall), which are worth catching (For those who have been to London, it reminded me of the performances at Southbank Centre)

Must see the library. If sunny, lie out on the grass afterwards and enjoy a coffee from Mister Tulk or a hot chocolate from San Churos.

Must see. So beautiful! To stand under the dome is a breathtaking sight as one takes in the marvel of architecture that is the State Library of Victoria.

Worth going inside, the beautiful old facade is lovely but the inside is just beautiful. Walking around seeing more computers than books is a bit sad but still worth going in & walking around the different levels especially from the dome level 6.
