We visited this museum in the hopes of learning something of the Australian film and television industry. Unfortunately, the noise level from the all of the areas made listening to any one particular commentary impossible. The film side was well represented but the tv side...More

I thought my teenager with a film/photo interest would like to go there. She loved it. I loved revisiting the media of my childhood too. It is good to remember how far this medium has come and how good the Australian film industry is.

The location is fantastic - right next to federation square and it's free. Was particularly fascinated by some of the exhibits, which bring you back to a time in history where the black and white tv existed and the history of films..... Recommended.

Before you enter this wonderful exhibition you are given a ‘Lost Map of Wonderland’ which, when placed on certain symbols, reveals a secret. And to enter you, of course, have to crawl through a tiny door. Then you discover Alice from her written and sketched...More

ACMI always has something to stimulate me and this visit was no different. If you like Art that makes you think outside the square this is the place for you.

Wonderland exhibit not my favourite to date and not great for older kids. Youngsters just love it. Always do it well.

Spent a couple of hours here but could have been a lot more! Really interesting exploration over time of the moving image with an obvious emphasis on Australia. Adults could quietly read and explore the history while the kids could focus on interactive games... Which...More

I would recommend the visit when there's an exhibit which may appeal. I went with a friend for the Wallace and Grommit exhibit last year. It was incredible. The detail of each piece on display, including the moving images, and the interactive DIY bit at...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
