It is a lovely airy space. My experience was that Australians are a lot less formal than their British and Irish antecedents and this comes across in the exhibits. They call a spade, a spade, and not a digging implement. Even if you are not the type of person who normally visits museums I still think the Melbourne museum is worth a look. For example, they had an exhibition on the soap opera Neighbours with a set of Madge’s house. There was also an interesting interactive exhibition on how playground games have evolved in the last century. Visit the website for more information.
