This is for all ages - revisit the classics, see the very earliest film and experience all sorts of fun things. Free to attend and well worth an hour or two of your time.
Brought my 5-year-old to visit. He loved it. It's amazing that a child who is used to iPads and iPhones can still enjoy Nintendo 64 games. The games exhibition was very well done full of consoles from every era. I did feel like everything was cramped together a little. My child enjoyed the zoetrope and the time splice video. We... More
I didn't know about ACMI until I saw one of their ads, but let me tell you, as a film student, I had tears in my eyes with excitement during the whole visit.

This is a great free museum (may have to pay for special exhibitions) in Federation Square. It's good for all the family with it's interactive displays which show the actual history of cinema. It's popular with schools so be aware that they may be school groups doing the tour. It's also an opportunity to visit Federation Square

Don't miss the museum on your trip to Melbourne. The exhibit is fun, interactive, and you can easily get lost for a few hours. Relive your own growth with technology through video games, moves, and the internet. It's quite a fun was to spend your afternoon!
It has great content, but it's a bit too much, with multiple speakers blasting at the same time. It also seems highly "sponsored," promoting Australian talent and companies.
If you are interested in film, television or digital culture, then you'll love ACMI. We dropped into ACMI and visited the [free] Screen World exhibition. We saw 2 real gold Oscars, some movie costumes, a replica of the Mad Max car and lots more film stuff. I was surprised to see that both adults and children were able to enjoy... More
Fascinating place to discover about Australian film. Excellent displays that keep your interest. Visited Shaun Tan The Lost Thing display which was incredible from storyboard to finished product. Highly recommended!
