Royal Exhibition Building



DescriptionRatingInfo
The Royal Exhibition Building is a World Heritage listed building located in Melbourne, Australia, completed in 1880. It is located in the Carlton Gardens, at the north-eastern edge of the central business district. It was built to host the Melbourne International Exhibition in 1880 and later hosted the opening of the first Parliament of Australia in 1901. Throughout the 20th century smaller sections and wings of the building were subject to demolition and fire, however the main building survived. It received restoration throughout the 1990's and in 2004 became the first building in Australia to be awarded UNESCO World Heritage status, being one of the last remaining major nineteenth century exhibition buildings in the world. It sits adjacent to the Melbourne Museum and is the largest item in Museum Victoria's collection. Today, the building hosts various small exhibitions and other events and is closely tied with events at the Melbourne Museum. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Exhibition_Building
