I visited primarily to see the Dreamworks exhibition, which I found really interesting and I loved seeing all the processes involved. After this I explored the rest of the museum and had great fun looking at pictures and props from old favourites like Skippy and Prisoner Cell Block H!

There is a current display of media and film that is free at the bottom level of ACMI that is worth an hour or more of anyone's time. There are even free computer games for all ages.

Have been quite a few times to see various exhibtions. They change regularly so plenty of reasons to keep going back. Screenworlds is also there all the time and free to have a look. There is also usually another small gallery next to it that changes all the time but that is also free. Upstairs is the cinemas, great for everyone, having kids flicks and seniors sessions as well as a bunch of festivals etc.
The staff are always nice and helpful when the building becomes confusing, it can be hard to navigate. Just remember to exit upstairs if you are on gallery's level! My only complaint is what I often say about tourist attractions, they are great educational and engaging spaces, not crèches for those with children. Of course bring kids and have them see everything, but don't have a coffee upstairs and let them run savage throughout the whole building.

Lots to see and do. I saw the DreamWorks Animation exhibit currently showing. The other exhibit I loved was the permanent exhibit "Screen Worlds". This is a must see. Off Federation Square in Melbourne.

This is a fantastic museum/exhibition and remarkably the main exhibition is free.

There is a history of film and cinema with interesting artefacts and hands-on displays. As you move through the museum you discover more about modern cinema and can even record your own Matrix-style video.

It's child-friendly without being aimed at children.

A must do.
