Everyone has a story. While our lives might all look different from the outside, our shared humanity becomes clear when we share these stories. We welcome you to share with us, and each other.
Through our rich collections, exhibitions, events, education programs and digital content, we explore themes of migration, identity, citizenship and community through multiple perspectives. We engage with communities and creative practitioners to produce powerful opportunities for social interaction, empathy and debate.
The Immigration Museum opened in 1998 within Old Customs House. Located on the bank of Birrarung (Yarra River), this former administrative centre of immigration and trade is a site of great historical significance and complexity.
