About Immigration Museum

Immigration Museum is a reimagining of Old Customs House, on of Melbourne’s most significant 19th century buildings.

The Old Customs House building is anchored by an impressive, wide ceremonial staircase that leads up to the marble-floored Grand Foyer. Next, move through to the palazzo-style Long Room, with its tall ceilings and Ionic columns that once greeted jostling crowds of travellers arriving in Marvellous Melbourne. You’re welcome to explore their stories as part of your event. 

Back downstairs, original bluestone vaults connect to the tranquil north-facing glass Atrium. This contemporary architectural addition overlooks one of the city’s only remaining private courtyards. The Courtyard plays host to events all year round – with a marquee available for your use, there are endless possibilities.
