Immigration Museum

Immigration Museum is a reimagining of Old Customs House, one of Melbourne’s most significant 19th century buildings. At the business end of Flinders Street—where merchants once unloaded their cargo—still surrounded by the bustle of the city, but lovingly restored to recall Melbourne’s history.Architecturally, the building connects grand Victorian design with modern detail—from the original bluestone vaults to the transparent Atrium overlooking our sunny Courtyard and Tribute Garden. We are a few steps from Collins Street trams and Flinders Lane car parking, a short walk from the city’s major rail hubs and a quick stroll from Southbank and the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. We love helping to transform the spaces at Immigration Museum - whether you need outdoor lighting as the sun sets on our Courtyard, or a private exhibition viewing in the opulent Long Room, we’re always flexible and happy to customise your floorplan. Our range of unique indoor and outdoor event spaces create the perfect backdrop for extraordinary events.
