Hosting exhibitions and educational programmes in addition to it’s function of keeping a record of Australia’s immigration history, the museum beautifully displays the personal stories of various immigrants. It carefully studies the influx, the time of the influx and the way the colony slowly developed into a nation. A fascinating part of the museum is the Interview Room, where visitors are encouraged to act as immigration officers interviewing potential immigrants from the 20’s, 50’s and the 90’s. Another curiosity is the Faith, Fashion and Fusion exhibit that explores the dressing habits of Muslim women in Australia. If you’re even the slightest bit of a history buff, this place is a treasure trove.

Immigration Museum, Melbourne Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great museum with the focus on the immigration; the people that arrived, who they were, how they're arrived, and when. They also go through the discrimination, the British policy making and the following Australian policies. They have so many artifacts from history and so much information. They also have some information about the customs house itself. I love that the place isn't too big, it's perfect size for the job. It's a great museum and I highly recommend it!

  • When researching inmigration history, there are ample resources at hand and staff to help. It is centrally located and open every day of the week. Great for not only adults but also children who are inquisitive about not their own roots but abundance of information ready for dissecting to learn about essential dates in Australian multicultural history.

  • A must for all Australians. It explains the origins of modern Australia. Every Australian bar First Nation should visit this place to understand who they are.

  • Free for students and children. Comprehensive and interesting look at a slice of Australia's history. Definitely worth an hour or two of your time. Tons worth seeing

  • This is well worth the visit it is very interesting and informative. A great collection of immigration and the changes it has had on Australia 🇦🇺 since colonisation. A great day out and the kids will learn heaps.
