Immigration Museum

Architect: Peter Kerr, Lovell Chen Architects

City of Melbourne | C55

Victorians come from more than 200 countries, speak 260 languages and dialects and follow 135 religious faiths. Why do people leave their countries of birth to live here? What is their experience in their new country? How do communities adapt to new arrivals? These are the questions that the Immigration Museum poses. This series of talks and tours presents thought-provoking experiences filled with compelling stories. Somewhere within, you’ll find your own story.
