Tells the history of Museum Victoria from its early beginnings as the National Museum of Victoria established in 1854 and The Industrial and Technological Museum established in 1870. Operating independently for over a century, the two merged in 1983. This book traces the changes in collecting and exhibition philosophies and provides an insight into how Australians through their museums view themselves and the world around them. Museum Victoria holds some of the greatest Australian natural history collections ever assembled.
