The Old Treasury Building is one of Melbourne's finest 19th century buildings. Visit this exciting museum, showcasing the history of Melbourne and Victoria.
The building is located on the land of the Kulin Nations. We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Traditional Custodians, past and present.
As our gallery spaces are small, we strongly recommend that fitted face masks are worn in the building.

Have you ever heard of a ‘nightman’, a ‘scoop boy’, or a phrenologist? How about a ‘fairy tapper’, a telegrapher, a ‘dolly boy’ or a lumper? These were all jobs that were once common, but have disappeared completely. Many jobs have vanished in Victoria over the years, while others have emerged, sometimes in completely new industries. The world of work is always changing.
Exhibition now on display.
