The Melbourne Museum is located in Carlton Gardens, just north of the city and close to tram lines. The Museum moved into its fantastic new building (designed by Denton Corker Marshall) in October 2000 and aims to provide a rich, surprising insight into life in Victoria. Our exhibition will be located in a special tent located on the Nicholson Street side of the plaza in between the Museum and the Royal Exhibition Building.
