The Melbourne Museum is located in the Carlton Garden in Melbourne, Australia, and it is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere. As a project of the Government of Victoria, the museum was opened in 2000. It’s earliest beginnings are traced back to the Government Assay Office which opened displays on La Trobe Street in 1854. The new Melbourne Museum was constructed during the period of the Kennett government and designed by Denton Corker Marshall. The Melbourne Museum provides a place for its visitors to learn about history, culture, and society. Considered one of the most popular museums in Australia, the museum is an important example of soft infrastructure which is all the services which are required to maintain economic, health, and social standards of the population.
