Immigration Museum


A stately city oasis, Immigration Museum is located in heritage-listed Old Customs House, one of Melbourne’s most significant Victorian-era buildings. Overlooking the Yarra River at the business end of Flinders Street—where merchants once unloaded their cargo—we’re immersed in the bustle of daily activity, but offer calm and elegant spaces inside our carefully restored building.

From stunning heritage details to contemporary spaces the Immigration Museum is the perfect event space

We have welcomed families, colleagues and groups of friends to this iconic building that recalls Melbourne’s rich heritage. Its grand 19th Century architecture and modern update houses important records and exhibitions that celebrate the diversity of our community. The cultural importance of our venue, and the incredible stories it tells, lends a distinctive quality to the events that take place here.

“Many thanks again for hosting our event. It was a really beautiful and fitting space, and
we look forward to the next opportunity to hold a function there. It was a wonderful
event last night! Thank you so much for your help. Eliza and Alan were terrific,” Migration Council.

Making an event your own is all about the detail, but first you need a beautiful space. Here the fun starts–we love to create personalised plans for unique events. Whether it’s a sit-down banquet, cocktails or professional gatherings, we’re sure we can suit your needs in style.

Whether you need outdoor lighting as the sun sets on our Courtyard, or a private exhibition viewing in the opulent Long Room, we’re always flexible and happy to customise your floorplan.

We love helping to transform the spaces at Immigration Museum.
