The top museums and art galleries in Melbourne

Here are some of the great museums around Melbourne. I have noted down some of the best ones.

Melbourne Museum
Always housing amazing permanent pieces and a flurry of temporary pieces as well. Having exhibitions about the Indigenous people of Victoria to the dinosaurs.

National Sports Museum
Housing a collection of Australia's greatest sporting events. You have clothing worn by sports personalities and gold medals won in the Sydney Olympics.

Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Center.
The indigenous people have a rich history with Australia, so this museum helps educate people that may not know much about the subject.

I have been to the Immigration Museum recently @ 400 Flinders Street. It was really interesting going into detail about some of Australia's dark history including the white Australia policy which was enforced until 1973. Many heartfelt personal stories from individuals about their journey to arrive in Australia. Like the story of the Eid brothers who chose to establish a taxi businesses in the 1970s to fulfill their hopes of prosperity, independence, mobility and flexible hours. Greater earnings could be made driving taxis compared with working for set wages, provided they were willing to put in long hours. In the long term, owning a licence proved to be a lucrative long-term investment. In recent decades, this has changed quite dramatically and no longer as profitable it once was.
