ABOUT Melbourne Museum
Large Event Venues

Melbourne Museum is an iconic, postmodern building located in the centre of the Carlton Gardens.  Perched on the edge of the city and surrounded by 64 acres of English oaks, Plane trees, Conifers and Moreton Bay figs, the building cuts a sculptural figure opposite the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building.

With 8 main galleries and temporary exhibition spaces, Melbourne Museum is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere — so there are plenty of spaces to choose from for every occasion.  For Conferences and Family Days, Cocktail Parties and Dinners, to the most important day in your life - your Wedding … Melbourne Museum will have a space you’ll fall in love with!

From the soaring Main Foyer to the secluded North Terrace, the spaces can be transformed to cater for 10 to 2,000 guests, while the dedicated theatre and Treetops setting provide beautiful blank canvas options with the museum’s many collections and galleries opening up interesting possibilities.

Cocktails with a blue whale skeleton? Dinner beside a 25-metre-tall forest? A PowerPoint presentation with Phar Lap?  Every event held here has an incredible extra something, with opportunities for striking backdrops such as a lush natural forest, dinosaur fossils, theatrical taxidermy and more!

Nearby trams and trains, plus a 900-bay onsite carpark, always make for a stress free event.

If you’re planning an unforgettable event, let your imagination take the lead at Melbourne Museum.
