ABOUT

Melbourne’s Living Museum of the West is a community Museum which actively involves the people of Melbourne’s West and others in documenting, preserving and interpreting the richness and depth of the region’s social, industrial and environmental history. The Living Museum, as it is more commonly known, was set up in 1984 to address what was then seen as a disadvantaged region, geographically flat and rocky, heavily industrialised with a high migrant population.The ecomuseum concept regards the area researched by a museum as part of the museum itself.
