Not a massive museum, but is an important reminder of the different cultures that make up Melbourne.

The Immigration Museum presents visitors with many exhibits that detail past events that occured. I found it very interesting and the people that ran the place were very friendly and shared a genuine interest in the place that they worked.

Be sure to check out what the Immigration Museum have on display. The museum changes their focus, often depending on a cultural national day or other significant celebration

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,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
