“Re-creates the real-life stories of coming to Australia.”
The Immigration Museum is a museum primarily displaying Australia's immigration history. It is located on Flinders Street in Melbourne, Victoria, in the Old Customs House. It is famous for its most important space, the Long Room, which is a notable piece of Renaissance Revival architecture. The museum was founded in 1998, and is a division of Museums Victoria, which administers the cultural and scientific collections of the State of Victoria. Its sister museums are Melbourne Museum (including the Royal Exhibition Building) and Scienceworks Museum. In addition to its work on documenting immigration history, the museum also hosts various travelling exhibitions, and also provides educational programs.
Explore Melbourne's history through stories of people from across the world who have migrated to Victoria at the Immigration Museum. From the reasons for making the journey, to the moment of arrival in a new country, and the impact on indigenous communities - these stories are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always engaging. The result is a thought-provoking and moving experience.
