Dinosaur Walk

Housed with floor-to-ceiling dinosaur skeletons, give your guests a truly unique wedding experience and take a journey through the galleries during your cocktail or dinner event.

 

The Melbourne Story

Showcased in Melbourne Gallery and reveals Melbourne’s unique and changing tale.

Treat your guests to a private viewing of more than 1200 objects from Museum Victoria’s collection, including Melbourne Museum’s most popular object, Phar Lap.

Melbourne Gallery is a perfect, unique space to hold your pre-dinner drinks or even reception.

 

Birrarung

Set within Bunjilaka, a living cultural centre made up of several key gallery spaces for Victoria's Indigenous community. It is no accident that the space curves like a river, as Birrarung is the Boonwurrung and Woi wurrung name for Yarra River. Birrarung has a hand-carved zinc wall and leads via double doors to an outdoor area known as Milarri Garden. Birrarung provides the perfect opportunity for guests to enjoy both a contemporary indoor venue and outdoor gardens.

 

Main Foyer & Walk

Set in front of the misty fern gully and waterfall of Melbourne Museum's living Forest Gallery, the Main Foyer and Walk is an architecturally designed contemporary space. Ideal for large wedding receptions or pre-dinner drinks, the Main Foyer and Walk has a beautiful openness about it and will give your guests a unique museum experience once walking through the doors.

 

Touring Hall Foyer

With angled steel columns and soaring glass walls, this space boats an abundance of natural light and has access to a private outdoor courtyard.

The Touring Hall Foyer and Courtyard is an ideal setting for pre-dinner drinks or even reception.
