This beautiful 19th-century building is a testament to the gold rush fever that built Melbourne. It was used to store the gold and has also been the office of the Governor General, the Premier, the Treasurer, and the Auditor General. Today it houses the historic gold vaults; however, the Governor General still meets the Executive Council here to sign new legislation. The Museum hosts temporary exhibitions, plus three permanent ones: Built on Gold, Growing up in the Old Treasury and Melbourne - A City Built on Gold. The gift shop sells gold rush memorabilia.
