ACMI - Australian Centre for the Moving Image
Time Out says
There's always something eye-opening to find at Australia's national museum of TV, film, games, art and digital culture
ACMI is much more than meets the eye. Sure, it's home to Australia's largest moving image collection and the fascinating and fun The Story of the Moving Image permanent exhibition. But there's also cinemas, student labs and educational spaces, a media preservation lab, plus a hospitality offering from Karen Martini.
ACMI reopened after a massive facelift in early 2021 and now boasts a swanky new architect-designed space with new and improved exhibitions, facilities, artworks and displays as well as some of the most incredible, cutting-edge technologies we’ve ever seen in a Melbourne museum.
Got a couple of hours to kill? Head to The Story of the Moving Image (which is a revamped version of the old Screen Worlds exhibit) where you can check out a collection of costumes, cameras, TikTok clips, contemporary art and everything in between. It's a brilliant look into different forms of the moving image that span decades, countries and platforms. And yes, you can play video games for free.
ACMI is free to enter but events and screenings are usually ticketed. Check out the website for current exhibits and film schedules.
