Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Spacious museum with an outstanding collection of Venetian glass, English porcelain, Gandharan Buddha statues, Sisley, Pisarro and an incredible Toltec Chacmool. They could not escape lamentation about the "black bodies" and the inevitable inclusion of substandard art based on gender/race but this is to be expected. Nice garden, stained glass roof.Written 21 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- During our tours to Australia, we visited the Crown Casino in Melbourne and the Star Casino in Sydney.
In my previous overseas tours, I had visited casinos in Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Auckland, Macao, Genting and on board Star Cruise but have yet to visit the two casinos of my own country which are Marina Bay Sands and the Resorts World Sentosa casinos. I am discouraged by the entry fee of S$100/- to $150/- that was imposed on Singaporeans to deter compulsive gambling.
Crown Casino is the largest casino complex in the southern hemisphere and one of the largest casinos in the world.
The staff at Crown Casino were very courteous, confident and helpful. One staff cordially invited us to their gas brigade firework display at 8 pm from their towers along the Yarra River.
I sought their advice on photo-taking. We are allowed to take photos of the casino as long as we do not take the photos of their staff and patrons.
Star Casino, on the other hand, disallowed any photo-taking of their gaming area. But the harborview outside Star casino was stunning.
The firework display at the towers were computerised and spectacular on a cold night. We felt the instant warmness once it was ignited followed by the strong petrol smell of the dark smoke.
Some of my friends tried their luck on the pokie machines and had some fun. I wandered around to appreciate the enormous size of the Crown Casino and was tired after few rounds of walking.
It was impressive but the casino is not my taste.Written 4 October 2023
- Once again The Australian Ballet Company delivers a spectacular performance. This time, Romeo and Juliet at the State Theatre Melbourne.
While David McAlister is a wonderful choreographer, it was refreshing to see a different talent on show. The glances, the gestures, the tiny moments were obviously the hand of a great talent at work here.
The costumes and setting was perfect.
While the prima ballerina may not have been the most graceful or perfect of dancers, she was a brilliant actor, and she brought grace and poise to every step.
The finals scene was breathtaking in every sense. I will never forget it.
Bravo for a wonderful performance.Written 13 October 2022
