I've been there before, I bring my children and my friends. They definitely enjoy the environment and friendly atmosphere of this museum. When I ask my children about the History of Melbourne, they explain detailed to me, and I am very happy because my children learned a lot. Event Tents.

Hi. Not a reply- a question. I wonder if anyone knows a nickname that was given to the corner of Elizabeth and Flinders Sts. when the intersection become traffic light controlled 'all direction pedestrian movement' type crossing. Back in the 1960's or so??
Someone said something like 'Barn ....' ??!! Dance ?? Storm ??
Any clues anyone?
I think it was earlier called 'Hosie's Corner', after the pub there - gone ???

Hello Gotiges.

I don't know the answer, however I typed "hosies corner" into Google and plenty came up.
You may get the answer in that lot.

Glen the Melbourne Museum looks interesting.
I will go when the weather gets a bit cooler.
