The original Ministry of Finance is now a tourist attraction. Located in the east of Melbourne’s city centre, next to the Old Town Hall. Built in the 19th century, it is said to be one of Australia's finest 19th century buildings. The appearance is not grand, but you can also see some nostalgic objects and furnishings in addition to the underground gold museum. The visit is free. You can take the free tram No. 35.
A very complete overview of the 18th century has been preserved. Looking at the group, it is very vicissitudes of age.
After restoration in 1994, the Old Finance Building was opened to the public as a museum, providing an ideal guide for tourists who wish to understand and explore the history, architecture and contemporary life of the city of Melbourne. The Old Treasury Building has three permanent exhibitions, namely the Built on Gold exhibition which reproduces the history of Victoria’s gold rush, the Victorian Archival Treasures exhibition which showcases the rich historical materials of Victoria, and the Growing Up in the Old Treasury exhibition which traces the development of the old Treasury building.
It is a very historic building, very good.
