What's On

If this is your first visit to Melbourne Museum, join one of our free daily tours for an overview of the museum's displays. An experienced guide will take you around the galleries and point out some of the highlights you might like to revisit. On the way, you'll hear stories about our objects, the history of Victoria, and the history of the museum itself.

Check the tour board sign just past the ticketing desk for starting times. Tours are offered at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm depending on demand and whether volunteer guides are available.

Tours run for 45–60 minutes.
