Please Note: Railway Station Access Changed

West Footscray station has moved a short distance (just 150 m) to the West and the new pedestrian bridge is part of the station.

The new station is of the "island" design with a single, central platform, whereas the old one had a platform on each side.

Coming from the City, and coming up the ramp to the bridge, MMOP is via the stairs (or lift or ramp) on the right (i.e. South). If you reach the football ground you have turned the wrong way!

See Regional Rail Link for more details, and pictures, of West Footscray Station.


Postal, telephone, email addresses :: further down the page.


OPENING TIMES

For General Public: details of days, times and prices are on our General Admission page.

Other programs, such as Access Studio, Graphic Students' Workshops and large-group visits, CAN BE BOOKED FOR ANY DAY.

Why did we move, and why is the collection still in jeopardy? Read this 2002 document.


Public Transport from Melbourne City:

Take a SUNBURY (or SYDENHAM) TRAIN from any city station to West Footscray: travel time 12 min, walk 5 to 7 min.

At West Footscray Station, be sure to turn to the right at the top of the ramp (on the bridge). Do not pass the Western Bulldogs football oval.

The large road-bridge that goes over the tracks is Geelong ROAD. Walk alongside it, do not cross it. The Museum is on the same side as the station. Cross Geelong STREET at the signals.

There is a car yard, an "iron foundry" then MMOP.

Car Travel

The Museum is located in Geelong Road, about 300 m past the 'hump bridge' that crosses the railway at West Footscray. It is located in the inbound service road. (Coming from the city) you pass by the Museum (on your right) and make a U-turn where the sign says 'Robbs Road and Graingers Road'. Go right across into the service road and drive back up Geelong Road.

All-day parking is usually available in Robbs Road or Graingers Road but not much in front of the Museum.

Consider public transport.
