What people are saying:

One of the largest library in the world. Magnificent architecture for this amazing place. A place where in every square meter you can appreciate what incredible thing is the culture, the art, the literature. Very interesting the sections around the dome with several topics related to Melbourne and Australia. And finally the balcony at level 6 where you can have a wonderful view of the dome. Definitively a must go during your stay in Melbourne.

    A must visit when you in Melbourne.

    A well preserved heritage building with great adaptive reuse to serve current needs and requirements. Highly recommended place to visit.

    A really beautiful building

    We only went in to see Ned Kelly's armour but were blown away by the architecture inside. Really helpful staff.

    Interesting for a rainy day visit

    Grand from the outside but a little disappointing inside. Plenty of comfortable sitting areas to relax and read locals and international newspapers.
