This building holds many keys to life in Victoria, from nature to its prehistory and culture. Even the building is a masterpiece, designed by famed local architectural firm Denton Corker Marshall. Phar Lap is the most popular exhibit here but you’ll also find CSIRAC – Australia’s first computer, all sorts of creepy crawlies at Bugs Alive and the skeletons of creatures long extinct at the Dinosaur Walk. Bunjilaka is the area of the museum that tells the story of Victoria’s First Peoples in their own words and celebrates the achievements and history of this fascinating culture.
Home of Lygon Street and a very popular AFL club, Carlton is known for its high concentration of Italian restaurants and cafes. Beyond Lygon be sure to explore Elgin Street and Carlton Gardens. A number of trams run in this direction from the CBD.
