Immigration Museum, Museum Victoria

The Immigration Museum explores the stories of real people from all over the world who have migrated to Victoria.

Located in the Old Customs House in the heart of the city of Melbourne, the museum re-creates the real-life stories of coming to Australia with a rich mix of moving images, personal and community voices, memories and memorabilia.

From the reasons for making the journey, to the moment of arrival in a new country, and the impact on indigenous communities, these stories are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always engaging.

The result is a thought-provoking and moving experience.
