It's free and there's plenty of activities for the very young though adult may find it a bore due to the lack of things to do/see. The main highlight would be the exhibits that require a paid ticket and they're generally quite captivating (we have...More

Saw the Aardman exhibition at ACMI in November 2017. The set up is great and the cost reasonable. Looking forward to future exhibitions when I am in town. The facilities are good and access is easy.

Spent a couple of hours here. I enjoyed the exhibition showcasing cinema and technology. It was great to learn how things are done in the movies and especially to learn about Australian history. My partner particularly liked the video games section!

All sorts of displays and booths and examples of the digital age and how we arrived. A great, interesting spot for kids. View early movies and TV show snippets as well as exhibits that explain computers, moving pictures, et al.

We went in a group of four to go to the Wallace and Grommit exhibition. We just thought we'd pop into the permanent exhibition - ended up spending three hours there and not finishing it. We're going back for Wallace and Grommit another day !

Central Business District
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
