City Museum

The Old Treasury Building is tucked into the corner of a group of prestigious buildings and institutions in Melbourne’s city centre, and houses what used to be known as the City Museum. Permanent exhibits like “Victorian Archival Treasures” are on display for the visitors to this historic place. Built in 1858, the architecture is of some importance to tourists as well as the fact it is still used by the Governor of Victoria for weekly meetings. This same location features the State Government offices, the Treasury Gardens, and the Fitzroy Gardens—all delightfully within walking distance.

  • Explore the permanent exhibits at the old City Museum like the “Victorian Archival Treasures” and “Built on Gold”, which detail Victoria’s history and showcase documents and artefacts relating the country’s development.
  • Explore the nearby gardens in central Melbourne: both Fitzroy Gardens and Treasury Gardens are gorgeously cultivated, and on a nice day they offer an ideal location for a picnic or introspective walk.
  • Relax and indulge after a day of sightseeing in Melbourne at the Princess Theatre next door, which plays beloved live shows like The Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables.

Visitors to this area will be very satisfied in the many options for public transportation. The Parliament Railway Station is located across from the Parliament Building, just steps away from the former City Museum. All the above mentioned attractions are within walking distance from here. In addition, there is also the Yarra Tram, which has multiple stops on Spring Street, the location for most of these points of interest. Trams in this area service almost every street, so there is no shortage of options for tourists and residents. Taxis are also a possibility, though more expensive.
