Really interesting, somewhat heartbreaking.
I found it to be a confronting and emotional experience. Was reminded how horrible humanity can be. A moving trip through Australia’s past, and a good place to determine what we should not be like!
I have to admit I had not visited for a while, but as a friend was down from the country, we agreed to meet there. A good decision, as we spent over an hour and a half looking at both the revamped permanent exhibitions and...More
My third visit during yearly visits to Melbourne.
This time specifically to see Maos Last Dancer Li Cunxins amazing story.
Didn’t disappoint & always a pleasure to wander through this intimate museum located in the beautiful old building on the banks of the Yarra.
I just ducked in here because it was raining . I stayed and was enthralled . Very helpful Staff .... lot's and lot's of things to look at and to read . I'm an immigrant ... most of us living in this Country are ....More
Went with my 12 and 10 yr old daughters and an aussie cousin (40) and her daughter (9). We all leant things about immigration we didn't know. It's a small museum but we were there about 3 hours, the children particularly liked the immigration interview...More
Frank and candid discussions of the oft- changing policies of immigration into Australia. Surprisingly absent was more than just a casual mention of the early penal inhabitants. Enjoyed the venue, but some noisy uncontrolled children running around detracted somewhat. Worth a couple of hours to...More
We were visiting Melbourne from the UK and thought this museum - although not directly relevant would be interesting.
Actually, it was very interesting indeed. A very well thought out and thought provoking museum making the lives of immigrants to Australia come alive.
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Hello K Gane, it looks like your question has been answered, except to say that children are also free to enter. and as previously stated Concession Card holders are also free. It is open almost every day of the year from 10am to 5pm. It is a very moving experience, especially for those who have chosen to make Australia their home and even for those who were born here. Enjoy
