A Selection Of Museum Books That May Interest You.



Melbourne: A City of Stories

  Melbourne: A City of Stories  

This book grew out of Museum's permanent exhibition, The Melbourne Story.

That makes it a selective history: one based on objects - things that have survived.

The idea that objects can give rise to stories comes as no surprise to anyone whos ever dug up a shard of old china in their garden, or found an ancient button down the back of a chair.

Old Melbourne Gaol

  The Old Melbourne Gaol  

This is a museum and former prison located in Russell Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

It consists of a bluestone building and courtyard, and is located next to the old City Police Watch House and City Courts buildings.

It was first constructed starting in 1839, and during its operation as a prison between 1845 and 1924, it held and executed some of Australia's most notorious criminals, including bushranger Ned Kelly and serial killer Frederick Bailey Deeming.

In total, 135 people were executed by hanging.

Though it was used briefly during World War II, it formally ceased operating as a prison in 1924; with parts of the gaol being incorporated into the RMIT University, and the rest becoming a museum.
