Owner description: Explore Australia's history and culture. Journey through Melbourn's history and explore stories of people who have migrated from all reaches of the world. From the reasons for making the journey, to the impact on indigenous communities, these stories are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always engaging. Located in the Old Customs House in the heart of the city - an easy walk from Flinders St Station or Southern Cross (or catch the free City Circle Tram).

A must for all who regard themselves as new Australians. Great exhibits thoughtfully displayed provide food for thought about the Lucky Country.

“Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

The British child migrant exibition was very informative and sad. It was good to find out why Australians left their countries of birth and how they got here and their contribution to their adoptive country

“Fabulous”

A must see if you're interested in Australian History. The stories of British kids who were sent to Australia after WW2 are very moving...

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

This museum will blow you away. It is interactive, suitable for young and old. Wait till you see the room with the boat or hear the stories of New Australians. Needs 10 stars.
