From the outside the view is deceiving. Once inside the tale of migration to Australia is told in a variety of interesting ways.

I had an hour or so to spare while I was waiting for my husband to finish a work conference and decided to pop in for a look. The building itself, Customs House, is gorgeous! It would've been worth the entry price ($14 for adults)...More

Spent a good couple of hours looking at all the information. Plenty to appeal to people. Even did some research into distant relatives that emigrated to Australia.

Small museum but very well put together and many exhibits very moving. We both enjoyed the visit and would go again for special exhibits.

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,
