This banking chamber in the ANZ Bank on Collins Street is old school architecture that is just not seen in this modern day. Free to wander around it highlights the history of banks and banking in Australia. If you have a free 30 minutes it...More

Really not a lot to see. There are some signs with historical information. The best thing to view is the building interior itself which is quite nice old style architecture, very elegant.

Banks are often thought of as heartless money grubbers, but this museum shows that banking isn't easy trade to follow. The ANZ Bank is to be congratulated for maintaining this fascinating museum; entry is gratis. Banking has come a long way from the colonial era;...More

It's free to get in and is in one of the most beautiful buildings in Melbourne. Go in for a bit of history.

Takes you back to another era - beautiful design and architecture and wonderful high ceilings - this part of Collins Street had wonderful buildings in a bygone era, will never be seen again so best enjoyed visiting a museum like this.

I happened to walk past this place on Sunday and made sure yo go back on Monday. I think the slightly harsher reviews are a perhaps a tad too harsh. It's a banking museum, that's free. You will most likely only enjoy and appreciate this...More

The building is the thing you want to see. It is so ornate and over the top. That is how things were 130 years ago I suppose. I love the carvings of dragons, the marble staircase, the ceiling decorations, and the old timber. I take...More

There is just nothing here for me to give this a higher Rating. You walk into a massive hall, where there is just pillars, then you walk down the hall past the bank tellers and there's a few portraits on the wall.....That's It. I did...More

An incredible architectural edifice, absolutely worth having a look at, especially if you’re walking down Collins Street, not really deserving of a special trip otherwise. Amazingly decorative and beautifully executed interior, but; you look, read the short narratives and move on. It’s not really a...More

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
