Melbourne’s Immigration Museum explores the stories of people from all over the world who have migrated to Victoria and Australia. From the reasons for making the journey to arrival in a new country and the impact on indigenous communities, these stories are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always engaging. Created by Museum Victoria, the Multilingual Tour is simple to follow and provides visitors with an orientation to the exhibitions. At each stop on the tour, text, audio commentary and stunning historical imagery show the people, businesses and varied architecture that have transformed Melbourne and Victoria.
