Looking out at Melbourne from the Royal Exhibition Building’s dome promenade was an experience enjoyed by thousands of Melburnians in the nineteenth century. Learn about the forthcoming Protection and Promotion project, which will reinstate the dome experience for a new generation.
Hear from one of the project architects and the curator as they reveal the conservation and other works involved in enabling access to the dome. Then journey through the rich and eclectic history of the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens, with stories from some of the objects that will form part of the interpretative experience for the project.
