Cynthia (Cynful Recommends): I would highly recommend going to the Melbourne museum because it is huge!They’ve got the dinosaur history part, all the insects, a whole entire living ecosystem for you to get up close and personal with the plants and birds - in the middle of the museum - as well as many other displays for you to learn more about Melbourne’s history.We even chanced upon the Mini Mega models museum which had the most interesting exhibits and witty descriptions!All for AUD15, very worth it in my opinion

There are many artifacts at I see and let’s not forget the magical dragonsA great way to spend a little time. Perfect for kids also

Danielle Kindleyside: This is a great little museum, packed with interesting items to look at and things to read. It’s split over multiple levels, and has a fun little walkthrough section on one level. The staff were polite and friendly, and it was one of the cheapest activities we’ve done in Melbourne.We went on a Saturday morning and there were only a couple of other families there, so it was a nice break from the crowds!

羊不凡: The history of Chinese immigration and pioneering in Australia has taught me some history that is almost impossible to know elsewhere. Apart from the Anglo-Saxons, we Chinese are the most hardworking in Australia!

There is an interesting exhibition that will teach you about Chinese migration to Australia during the times of the Gold Rush.

Carlos De Ory: "Revitalized at the Heleni Museum: A Lifesaver for Early Arrivals in Melbourne"Landing in Melbourne at the brisk hour of 6 AM, with the city barely stirring awake, presents a peculiar dilemma for any traveler. The anticipation of exploring a new city is often met with the immediate realization that your Airbnb won't welcome you until the official check-in time of 4 PM. This is where my unexpected sanctuary, the Heleni Museum, enters the story.Imagine this: you've just arrived from a long flight, weary, jet-lagged, and carrying the weight of your luggage and sleep deprivation. The thought of wandering aimlessly or seeking refuge in a café for hours is less than appealing. Then, as if guided by the fates themselves, you find yourself at the doorstep of the Heleni Museum, not for its exhibits, but in pursuit of a place to simply be.The Heleni Museum, renowned for its cultural treasures, inadvertently becomes a haven for the time-displaced traveler. Among its many accolades, it's the museum's sofas that truly stand out in this moment. These are not just any sofas; they are plush, inviting, and unexpectedly restorative. Positioned thoughtfully throughout the museum, they offer more than just a place to sit—they provide a rare comfort to travelers caught in the limbo of waiting.As I ventured through the museum, each exhibit not only captivated my interest but also allowed me to momentarily forget the exhaustion. And then, finding a sofa nestled in a quiet corner, I experienced a profound sense of relief. Resting there, amidst the art and history, I felt a wave of rejuvenation wash over me. The Heleni Museum, with its unexpected oasis of sofas, gave me a place to gather my strength, to truly appreciate the serenity of my surroundings.The museum, in essence, became more than a cultural institution that day; it was a lifeline. It transformed the daunting hours of waiting into an opportunity for unexpected discovery and rest. The sofas of the Heleni Museum didn't just offer physical comfort; they provided a sanctuary where I could recoup and prepare myself for the adventures that lay ahead in Melbourne.In reflection, the Heleni Museum and its comforting embrace highlight the beauty of travel's unpredictability. What began as a logistical inconvenience evolved into an enriching experience, reminding us that sometimes, the most memorable moments are found in the most unforeseen places.

So glad they have been preserved. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Only a small donation to get in. Highly recommend this place for people of all ages but it would be difficult to climb into some of the trams if you have mobility issues. Everyone there was definitely enjoying themselves, especially the kids.

Thomas Lynchehan: An excellent museum not only documenting the history of Melbourne's tram network but also a superb collection of historic trans of all vintages. You can freely explore these trams, climbing aboard and into the driver's cab. The guides were friendly and very insightful including their own anecdotes of their experience on these historical vehicles. A very worthwhile place to visit, I could have stayed for longer than 90 mins had time allowed, very good value for only a small donation.

Alice: The Tram Museum is run by volunteers, and it opens every second and fourth Saturday of the month. It has a very informative free tour every 30 min. Visitors are welcome to climb onto each tram and be on the driver seat, step on the bell. Good fun for all ages. However all tram carriages are parked very close, with very tight spaces to walk around and some trams' steps are high to climb on.

YU-CHEN LIN: 🚋You can prepare 1 or 2 Australian coins before coming. You can decide whether to donate at the door. If you forget to bring coins, you can also swipe your card in the gift area to donate!If you like history or antiques, you must come to this museum! There is also a free tour here. It is like a world where the past 200 years of history are condensed into a museum. If you like Melbourne and want to know more about it, you must come. The gift shop also has many beautiful postcards, but please pay attention to the opening hours. Please go to their official website to check it. It is not open regularly.

While there I realised here is a hidden gem of Melbourne that if you can get down there and make sure you talk to the members who work there and appreciate the dedication these people have.
