Getting Here

It’s an easy walk to Melbourne Museum from the city centre, alternatively you can ride the free City Circle Tram and hop off at Stop 11, Victoria Parade & Nicholson Street.

Tram routes 86 & 96 both stop at the corner of Nicholson and Gertrude Streets which is directly opposite the Museum, however you will need to use your Myki card if using this stop from the City as it is just outside Zone 1.

TIP: Leave yourself enough time to wander through the World Heritage Listed Carlton Gardens (that the Museum sits within) and around The Royal Exhibition Building which were both designed for the great international exhibitions of 1880 and 1888 in Melbourne.
