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 trove of information.

    A nice place to visit on a rainy day. The state library is quite large with many rooms on different levels full of information. The Dome is quite spectacular with original wooden seats and desks.
