FACILITIES & ACCESSIBILITY
The Museum has a number of accessible facilities on site, including ramps at front and rear entrances, lift access between floors, and an accessible toilet with changing table on the ground floor. Service animals are welcome.
The Museum Gift Shop stocks an exciting range of books, art, homewares and toys inspired by Museum collections. Find it on the Ground Floor or shop online.
While there is no cafe on site, the Museum is only a short distance from some of Melbourne's favourite food and coffee precincts! Visit our neighbours at The Mint Bar and Kings and Knaves Espresso, or venture just a little further to Healeys Lane, Hardware Lane, Melbourne Central and the famous Queen Victoria Market.
THE SENSORY FRIENDLY MUSEUM
The Hellenic Museum offers a sensory map to assist visitors on the Autism spectrum or with other sensory needs. This map indicates low and high sensory areas of the Museum, as well as rest points and facilities.
Click below to download the sensory map prior to your visit. A limited number of laminated, reusable maps are also available at reception.
The Hellenic Museum periodically runs Sensory Sessions where multimedia features (such as ambient music, video screens and interactives) are turned off or minimised for a set period. These sessions are advertised on our website and social media when available.
Does the Museum have a quiet area?
The Hellenic Museum does not have a designated quiet area. However, we are a small and typically quiet museum. The sensory map indicates rest points where chairs are available and, weather depending, there are picnic tables available in our front and rear courtyards.
What can I expect from my visit?
First time visitor? We can't wait to welcome you! We have a sensory map above to assist with your visit, and are in the process of developing social scripts which will be published here when available. You can also visit the Current Exhibitions page for galleries you can expect to see on your visit.
