Chinese Museum

The Chinese Museum in Melbourne, Australia, houses a collection of artefacts and exhibits that detail the rich history and contributions of the Chinese in Australia. The Chinese Museum was opened in 1985 in Melbourne's Chinatown, located within the Central Business District, and features five floors of historical artefacts, interactive exhibits, and art galleries. Various special events and festivals like the Moon Lantern Festival and the Mid-Autumn Open Day are hosted by the Chinese Museum throughout the year. Visitors to Melbourne are encouraged to visit the museum to experience the rich cultural impact the Chinese have contributed to modern Australian life.

  • See the history of Melbourne’s Chinatown come to life with a Guided Chinatown Heritage Walk, where an expert in Chinese culture from the Chinese Museum will explain the area's fascinating history.
  • Experience life as a Chinese immigrant working in a 19th century Melbourne gold mine at the Chinese Museum's interactive "Finding Gold" exhibit.
  • Marvel at the museum's Dragon Gallery that houses over three generations of processional Chinese dragons, including the Dai Loong Association's Millennium Dragon, one of the largest Chinese dragons in the world.

Melbourne is known throughout Australia for its efficient public transportation, and the Chinese Museum is easily accessible via public transit from just about anywhere within the city. One of the best ways to see the sights of Melbourne is aboard the Melbourne Visitor Shuttle, a free tour bus that takes visitors to many local attractions, including Chinatown, with a stop at the Chinese Museum. There are also several bus and tram stops within a block of the museum, including the Parliament Railway Station, the Exhibition Street station, and the Russell Street station. Parking is limited, so public transit is preferred.
