“Needs a change”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

While I understand that this is a permanent exhibition and a good one I think there is a need for there to be some changes from time to time. I visit Federation Square every time I visit Melbourne but I think that he exhibits should be refreshed.

“surprising good time”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I just happened into the ACMI by mistake and found the time spent there informative and fun. Lots of info on historical moving image technology , put together in an interactive manner that seems to spur you on to the next station. Things I didn't know!
