Museums

Learn something new at Victoria's museums. From history to hands-on science, find exhibits ready to amaze kids and grown-ups alike.

Multicultural Victoria

Spend a day at the Melbourne Museum and learn about everything from Australian flora and fauna to Koori heritage. Other highlights include the Immigration Museum, which offers a unique picture of the cultural formation of the country and the Chinese Museum in Chinatown which focuses on Melbourne's Chinese heritage.

Immerse yourself in Australian history at Swan Hill's Pioneer Settlement and experience life during the 1850s gold rush at Ballarat's Sovereign Hill, where visitors can ride in a horse-drawn carriage and tour the old mines.

A 'hands-on' learning experience

Inviting you to participate in the learning experience, Scienceworks offers visitors a look at everything from the future to the great unknown through exhibits, technology, and even a planetarium.

Another truly unique experience comes from Old Melbourne Gaol, which housed Victoria's toughest criminals and the infamous bushranger, Ned Kelly. Spend the day 'behind bars', experiencing everything from the cells themselves to an actual arrest. The bravest visitors even have the opportunity to tour the prison by candlelight on one of its infamous night tours.
