Aboriginal Experience

Immerse yourself in stories of Victoria’s cultural history, told by its traditional custodians.

Explore Aboriginal culture right in the heart of the city by visiting one of the most important collections in the world. The Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre is part of the Melbourne Museum, sharing the stories of the First Peoples of Victoria through art, storytelling, and interactive experiences.

The center has three main areas: First Peoples, a permanent exhibition celebrating the survival of Victoria’s Aboriginal people; the Birrarung Gallery, showcasing art by contemporary Aboriginal artists; and Millari Garden, where you can learn about local plants and animals significant to the world’s oldest living culture.

The museum, meaning ‘the place of Bunjil’ (the ancestral wedge-tailed eagle), was designed with input from Aboriginal people, including Melbourne’s traditional owners, the Boon wurrung and the Woi wurrung. It offers an immersive, interactive, and often emotional experience in Aboriginal culture.
