Where Did You Come From?
The Immigration Museum is primarily displaying Australia's immigration history. It is famous for its most important space, Long Room, which is a notable piece of Renaissance Revival Architecture.

In addition to documenting immigration history, the museum also hosts various travelling exhibitions and also provides educational programs.
