Housed in a Post-Modern building designed by Denton Corker Marshall Architects in Carlton Gardens, the Melbourne Museum explores Australian social history, indigenous cultures, science and natural history. The '600 Million Years' exhibition traces the origin of life and evolution in Victoria, from primeval bryozoans and cephalopods through dinosaurs and Archaeopteryx to modern animals in the 'Science and Life Gallery'. The Forest Gallery enclosure recreates a living temperate Victorian forest environment, complete with trees and waterfalls, birds, fish, and reptiles. The Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre is dedicated to the local Koorie people of Victoria, with exhibitions about the Aboriginals. There are several other interesting displays, such as the legendary Australian racehorse Phar Lap, and Pygmy Blue Whale skeleton. The IMAX theatre in the complex presents 3D documentaries.
