This vast museum is the largest in the southern hemisphere; it houses a living temperate rainforest and galleries dedicated to natural history and evolution as well as exhibits that explore Melbourne's background and the Aboriginal people of Victoria. The building, designed by local architects Denton Corker Marshall, is interesting in its own right; its contemporary form provides a stark contrast to the neighboring Royal Exhibition Building, which dates back to 1880.
