The Royal Exhibition Building is located in Carlton Gardens, just north of Melbourne’s CBD.


We are a working exhibition pavillion that hosts dozens of events and expos each year. As such, we're not open for general viewing. You can see inside the Royal Exhibition Building by coming to an event or exhibition, or by joining one of our regular guided tours.

The tours are held on most days at 2pm when the building is available. All tours depart from the adjacent Melbourne Museum and cost $10 for adults, $8 for concession, and $7 for children and Museum Members.
