The Melbourne Museum

The museum is located in Carlton Gardens and is a centre for natural and cultural Victorian history. Characterized by post-modernist flair designed by Corker, the building(s) is intended to be navigable in an orthogonal manner. The building is individual and collectively part of the complex that forms Carlton Gardens. The museum’s history can be tracked to 1854 when the first displays of Victorian History were opened on La Trobe Street. The museum, which one Best Tourism Attraction at ATA awards, hosts both temporary and fixed exhibitions such as Bugs alive, which has attracted millions of visitors since its opening in 2004.
