Old Treasury Building 

A dynamic partnership between Public Record Office Victoria and the Old Treasury Building Museum in Melbourne exhibits selected archival treasures in an annual series of public exhibitions. Both temporary and longer-term exhibitions are presented, supported by education programs, public lectures, floor talks and seminars.

The Old Treasury Building attracts between 65,000 and 70,000 visitors annually, including more than 6,000 school children. Many more access digital content relating to the exhibition program.

Details of the current display program can be found here:

The Old Treasury Building is open from 10-4, Sunday –Friday (certain public holidays excepted).
