“Helpful in finding lost friends”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

If you are trying to find lost friends check out the archives here. The woman was very helpful showing the microfiches. Their records are not up to date but they pointed the way to the solution,

“Ned Kelly Armour.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

If you are a Ned Kelly fan you just have to visit the Library of Victoria. This is where you will find Neds REAL armour on display. It is said to worth more than $2 million. Also see Neds left boot which was cut from his wounded foot at Glenrowan in June 1880. There is also one of his rifles and the Jerildere letter on display. There is a wall of old photos on display from the early days of melbourne. Out the front of the Library is the statue of Sir Redman Barry who sentanced Ned to hang. He died 12 days after Ned.

“Cool place to hangout”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stopped inside and took in a small gallery, also looked around a bit. Most interesting part is all the people relaxing around the grounds enjoying the sun. Musicians, people watching, ....very cool place to hangout.

“Wow,”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Thought that we would go and spend 20 minutes in this building, after all it was just a library! Well, we're we wrong! A beautiful, historical building, well worth the visit. They have several exhibitions on at a time. & also hold Ned Kelly's armour. Lots of paintings documenting Victorian & Australia's history. We spent over 3 hours there!
