Melbourne’s Immigration Museum presents a thought-provoking experience filled with stories that are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always compelling. And somewhere within, you’ll find your own story.

In 1998, Immigration Museum opened in the beautifully restored Old Customs House on Flinders Street. As the former administrative centre of Melbourne’s immigration and customs, it is the perfect home for a museum filled with the real stories of people who have migrated to Victoria.

Today, you’ll find two floors of exhibition galleries that house temporary exhibitions and events, along with permanent fixtures such as Identity: Yours, Mine, Ours, Leaving Home and Immigrant Stories and Timeline.
