Melbourne: Your guide to museums

Hi Pals,
Recently I was looking at maps [which I have a habit of doing] and noticed that there are a few museums near my work that I’d never even heard of. It got me thinking, how many museums are in Melbourne?


Wikipedia listed around 40 museums, Airbnb said 30 but only listed 23 and TripAdvisor lists 64 if you tally them all up. I’m slowly going to them all and adding photos.
I had to remove the Art Galleries/Museums because it was too much – it’ll be in a separate post.

What classifies a Museum?
The International Association of Museums defines it as follows:
A non-profit making, permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, and open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of the study, education, and enjoyment, material evidence of people and their environment. 

So with that, here’s a list of Museums in Melbourne that are worth some time.
