ACMI and MPavillion present
Renewing the Museum: ACMI's Journey
Join ACMI staff as they provide a sneak peek into our new museum.
ACMI is the world’s most visited moving image museum, with almost 15 million people visiting since we opened our doors in 2002. Thanks to investment by the Victorian Government and independent partners the museum is currently in a process of renewal, with a redesigned building and new permanent exhibition due to open soon.
Join the ACMI team at MPavillion as they explore what it means to reimagine the museum for the 21st Century.
