The Melbourne Museum

In honour of International Museum Day on the 18th, it’s time for another museum post.

The Melbourne Museum, which I recently visited, is an excellent museum, although the curating of the permanent displays is perhaps a little less creative than some of the other museums I’ve covered. This may be because the real energy at the Melbourne Museum seems to go into their superb temporary exhibits. Their Pompeii exhibition in 2009 was particularly good.

The permanent displays are free for children and concession-card holders. See the Wikipedia article and the museum website for more information.
