Australia’s largest public museum organisation

We have been creating knowledge, entertaining visitors and building the State Collection since 1854. The collection is an invaluable record of Victoria’s environmental and cultural history, and our amazing wealth of over 17 million items has been inspiring a sense of wonder and awe in visitors for generations.
