Carlton Gardens are located on the northeast corner of Melbourne’s CBD. It is the home of the Royal Exhibition Building and the Melbourne Museum. The Royal Exhibition Building was completed in 1880 to host the Melbourne International Exhibition. It is still used today for special events. It is one of the most impressive buildings in Melbourne.
The Melbourne Museum, opening in 2001, is an equally impressive modern building housing natural and cultural history exhibits. The kids were particularly intrigued by their impressive collection of dinosaur skeletons. The Imax theatre is also located here.
The Carlton Gardens also includes various gardens, a playground, and plenty of green space. This was one of our favorite places in the city.
