A contemporary architectural icon, Melbourne Museum is located opposite the Royal Exhibition Building, in the historic Carlton Gardens. Our vast range of spaces—from light filled atriums to leafy courtyards— provide plenty of opportunity to let your imagination take the lead. With eight main galleries and temporary exhibition spaces, we're the largest museum in the southern hemisphere.From the soaring Main Foyer to the secluded North Terrace, we love transforming our spaces. While our dedicated theatre, Treetops setting and meeting hubs provide beautiful blank canvas, the Museum’s collections and galleries open up a number of interesting possibilities. Cocktails with a blue whale skeleton? Dinner beside a 25-metre-tall forest? A presentation with Phar Lap? We work with our exclusive catering partner, Restaurant Associates who will consult directly with you to create an innovative menu and deliver a memorable culinary experience.
