Immigration Discovery Centre

Immigration Discovery Centre

Embark on your journey of self discovery and learning at the Sarah and Baillieu Myer Discovery Centre at the Immigration Museum.

The Centre has recently undergone a significant refurbishment and we welcome you to come and visit the new facilities on offer.

Located in the beautifully restored 19th Century vaults of the Old Customs House, the Immigration Discovery Centre provides a range of resources to assist with research on family history, general immigration history and community information. It is a place that caters for questions from all ages relating to immigration history in Victoria.

Resources in the Centre

Delve into our rare collection of books in the reference library and explore our online and multimedia resources to learn more about migrant communities and your own migration history. You can also read migration stories, or write your own, on the Share A Story database.
