What people are saying:

Displays and exhibitions are detailed and realistic, many of which are interactive. The Museum is ideal for both the curious child and learned adult, making it perfect for day out for the family. Don't miss seasonal exhibitions (the most recent one being Jurassic World which was very impressive). Be prepared to spend at least 2 to 3 hours to fully enjoy what the museum has to offer. They also have a cafe and souvenir shop.Tip: It gets really busy (sometimes chaotic!) during the school holidays so try a weekday morning during off-peak seasons for a more relaxed experience.

    Melbourne Museum

    The Melbourne museum is great. You can see both natural and man made objects from Australia’s history. The museum is nice and big, and there is plenty to see.

    The Marvelous Melbourne Museum

    The exhibits are outstanding and fascinating. So comfortable and easy to visit. I enjoyed the exhibits about psychology, the native peoples of Australia, the eels, the sciences, and more.
