Melbourne Museum Reviews
とても昔に来たことがありましたが、その記憶が結びつかない位にキレイになっていたと思います。でも変わらず恐竜が一番の楽しみでした。更にハイテクになり楽しく体験型もあり多方面に渡る展開が博物館全体にありました。 more »I used to come a long time ago, but I think it was so beautiful that the memories were not connected. But dinosaurs were still the most fun. In addition, there was a development that went to various fields because it became high-tech, and there was a pleasant experience type, too, and there was a development in the whole museum.
Decided to visit this Museum when I had a relative from overseas who was visiting Melbourne. It is a fairly large Museum with enough to see for a couple of hours. more »
Amazing natural science exhibits. I loved the section on bugs and the extensive beetle and butterfly displays. Totally amazing! I was mesmerized. The taxidermy animals were very cool too, especially the examples of native animals and the extinct specimens, such as the Thylacine. Definitely enough to see and learn to make your brain feel like it's melting out your ears :) General museum admissions is $15 for general or free for concession.
We had limited time on our hands when we got to the museum so we had a quick look around on the outside. The displays looks very interesting and we will definitely be back to have a look inside the museum. Externally, it is a modern looking building with the entry facing south. There are two large roof panels in front of the building that rises up to the east and the west. On the northern side runs a dark grey wall along the entire boundary.
