Melbourne Museum is celebrated for its striking architecture, on full display in our Main Foyer and Walk. The soaring, multi-level openness of the space creates an exciting atmosphere full of potential. The surrounding exhibits are one-of-a-kind, with the lush Forest Gallery as an enchanting backdrop and the awe-inspiring blue whale skeleton at the west end of the Walk something to remember.

With state-of-the-art controlled lighting and immediate access to the impressive Museum Plaza, it’s a brilliant space for large-scale dinners, cocktail parties or drinks before an event in another of the museum’s spaces.
