  • Being interested in photography and the "moving image" ACMI was irresistible on a recent visit to Melbourne. We lucked in, as the museum was about to close for refurbishment -search "ACMI Melbourne" t...  more »
  • The sign reads "ACMI" in four large words and is the name of "Australian Centre for the Moving Image". The main focus is on Australia's achievements in the film, video, video, play and so on, probably I am not familiar with the Australian shadow, spent 30 minutes in the circle is still a little unknown, nothing special collection

  • Australian Center for the Moving Image or ACMI is one for the free museums located at the Federation Square, it is also unique as a very rare kind of museum devoted to moving images. There was a virtual reality exhibit which we were able to try when we visited and it was really awesome, but it is recommended for kids ten years and older. Their museum shop has a nice and diverse collections of films and related memorabilia.
  • Great. Definitely worth a visit even if it's just to reminisce about the TV programmes you watched as a kid. If you are interested in the cinema and it's history this place is a must
