Immigration Museum Multilingual Tours

Tour the Immigration Museum in your language.

The Immigration Museum explores the stories of people from all over the world who have migrated to Victoria and Australia. 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.

Created by Museum Victoria, the Multilingual Tour is simple to follow and provides an orientation to the exhibitions and building. At each stop, detailed text, audio commentary and stunning historical imagery show the people, businesses and architecture that have transformed Melbourne and Victoria.
