Multicultural Melbourne has been created by people from all over the world. Whether they left their homelands by choice or by force, their experiences are relived at the Immigration Museum, beginning with the long sea voyage on a real sized boat, brought to life with true stories from past immigrants. The Museum is often used by researchers and schools to trace migratory patterns and family trees.
My expectations were not high upon arrival at the immigration mueseum, however stepping inside proved to be a completely different experience. So much information to absorb and displays were far more interactive then I had imagined. You justt need to make sure that you reserve lots of time to get through all the information as well as your reading glasses!
Immigration museum located at Flinders Street Melbourne. The ground floor includes the Immigration Discovery Centre, Museum Shop and The information Desk. The Museum's permanent exhibitions is located at the first floor, which explore Victoria's multicultural history and the immigration experience.There are 4 section in this exhibitation, includes Leavings; Setttlings; Journeys and Getting in. Visitor start from the Leavings section and finish in "Getting In" section, which it's showing the process of those people immigration to Austrail in 200 years ago. Not only the sport lighting, a large quantily of digital video projection, media technolgy also been used in this exhibiation. And the most instresting part that i found is the Journeys section. There is a ship that installed in the middle of the long room and you can walk aroud, it really looks like you get inside the ship and the time that revers back to 1820.
I highly recommend the Immigration museum, that you will gain more experience from there.

Melbourne and its original seaport of Williamstown shared mutual prosperity when they were established back in the 1830s. However, as
