We visited the Arts Centre to see a Comedy Festival show and loved the theatre. As the theatrical showpiece of Melbourne, the Arts Centre is very well set up and quite opulent. Having seen shows in both the State Theatre and the Play House, we look forward to seeing more shows here.

A return trip to our beloved Melbourne Arts Centre with my young son to see the Children's production of the acclaimed children's author David Walliam's "Mr Stink". Neither of us had read the book the play was based on but had enjoyed many of the author's previous children's books together. He has a wicked sense of humour and is sharply... More

My wife and I went for the Burn the Floor show. What an amazing performance it was. Absolutely fantastic. Amazing dancers. Very well directed. Everything was perfect. Such energy from the dancers for 2 hours. The lighting, costumes, dance sequences and story lines. Just too good. One of the best shows I have seen.

Some interesting displays and exhibits which are obviously designed to get you thinking about the way they are put together. Well worth the visit.
