The exhibits and informative displays segregated to showcase the literal purpose of the place. Visual and Audio knowledge of movies and other media are all well organised and aptly described.

I recently visited the Wonderland exhibition. It was nice to see the original letters and illustrations, and there were some fun elements, including the mad hatters tea party. However, I didn't need too long in there. There wasn't a huge amount to see. The general...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
