Event description

Description

Ever wondered what it looks like deep down in the archive?

Find out on our free one-hour guided tours that venture beyond the Get Smart security doors, through the air locks and into the repository. Who knows what you might encounter among the 100 kilometres of records and 180 years of history in our collection, but you’re guaranteed plenty of pause for thought about the links to your history as well as a look at a petition so big it was tabled in parliament on a surf reel!

Bookings essential.

Please consider the following before booking:

Tours of the Victorian Archives Centre last one hour and a minimum level of fitness is required to walk and stand for the full hour.

All bags must be checked with security before the tour commences – we do not allow any food or drink on the tour.

There are no toilet facilities available once the tour is underway.

The secure nature of our facility requires the tour to end and all participants to return to public spaces if a member is unable to continue on the tour for any reason.

If you have special access requirements, please contact volunteers@prov.vic.gov.au and PROV will endeavour, where possible, to meet your needs.

On arrival please sign in at security who will give options for securely stowing your bags etc, which are prohibited in PROV's reading Room and repository. Note also that we don't permit photography in the repository (but we can provide you with images of the repos, if you're interested).
