With its origins steeped in history, the Royal Exhibition Building was built for the 1880 Melbourne International Exhibition. As a key attraction of the 1880 and 1888 international exhibitions, the Dome Promenade provided visitors a unique opportunity to overlook the gardens and view the Melbourne skyline.
Once again, visitors will be able to marvel at the views on a guided experience as well as enjoy an exhibition that explores the building’s significant history and varied uses over time.
Tours will be offered four times daily, with bookings essential. The ticket price ($15 to $29) also includes entry to Melbourne Museum.
