Occasional architecture-related exhibitions:
“City Museum is a gateway to ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ and allows visitors to absorb the full spirit of Melbourne under one roof. City Museum presents the story of Melbourne, through a myriad of diverse exhibitions. Be captivated by the events that have shaped Melbourne, and discover fascinating insights into the city’s development in one of Australia’s finest nineteenth century buildings.
City Museum combines social history with displays of historically significant objects, multimedia technology and contemporary art and craft, across a range of permanent and seasonal exhibitions. The hidden treasure of the Old Treasury Building is the historical gold vaults, which today houses the spectacular exhibition Built on Gold.”
“The house is located eight kilometres east of Melbourne in the residential suburb of Kew and displays selected works from the Lyon Collection. The Collection includes paintings, sculpture, video work and installations by many of Australia’s leading contemporary artists.
The private house and Collection are open for limited public viewing by appointment on designated days each year. The Housemuseum is also made available for visits by Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 school students on limited days each year.”
