Really cool experience overall with lots of things to see and do! Different displays and detailed explanations to match the work on display. Great activity for any age and is an overall great learning experience. I didn't go myself, but the Cafe seemed a little over priced for the products, but other than that, I had a really great time!
I took my 5 year old brother to the Melbourne Museum and he loved it! Just as I remembered as a little kid, there are so many things to see and interact with. We went specifically to see the Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs exhibition. It was really cool and was a great hit with my brother who loves dinosaurs. He also especially loved the insect and bugs section which had all kinds of creepy crawlys. But even if you’re not a fan of bugs there’s still something for everyone. Personally my favourite section is the Australian history room - especially the history relating to Melbourne. We have a museum membership so we were able to visit the museum for free, including the triceratops exhibition. I think if you have kids and they enjoy the museum it is definitely worth considering purchasing a membership. You even get discounts at the gift shop and cheaper parking too. The museum was clean, had friendly and welcoming staff and overall we had a great time.
