Thought provoking, moving and always interesting the Immigration Museum shares the stories of those that migrated to Victoria from all over the world. Using memorabilia, moving images, voices, and personal memories, the museum acts to educate visitors about the city's past. Located in the actual old Customs House, one of Melbourne's most beautiful 19th century buildings, the stories told here, from the impact on indigenous communities after the first settlers arrived to the modern influx of Mediterranean immigrants, the Immigration Museum is an insightful experience. A café and gift shop is also on the premises.
