The Melbourne Museum is a must for anybody who likes to indulge in a little bit of learning and discovery of surprising insights about other cultures, the environment and the world around us. Located in Carlton Gardens, the Melbourne Museum houses a permanent collection in eight galleries, including one just for children. Open daily, the permanent exhibition Bugs Alive! is a must-see, where you are invited to view over 100 species of live insects and spiders and interact with a range of exhibits. If creepy crawlies aren’t your thing, come and have a deep sea experience with Marine Life, where you can journey to the bottom of the ocean to discover Victoria’s amazing sea life. Another great exhibition is the Dinosaur Walk, where you can walk amongst skeletons of some of the most amazing and enigmatic animals from the past.
