What travelers say:

One of the largest library in the world. Magnificent architecture for this amazing place. A place where in every square meter you can appreciate what incredible thing is the culture, the art, the literature. Very interesting the sections around the dome with several topics related to Melbourne and Australia. And finally the balcony at level 6 where you can have a wonderful view of the dome. Definitively a must go during your stay in Melbourne.
