Melbourne Open House - Visit us on Sunday 29 July 2012
The RHSV is participating in Melbourne Open House this year, but on Sunday only. If you are unable to visit us during the week, this is a great opportunity to drop in on the weekend and see our wonderful Art Deco building, including the Officer's Mess on the first floor, not usually on view to the public. Also see our fabulous exhibition, "Melbourne Theatres in Transition: 1840′s – 1940′s, an Idiosyncratic View", featuring the theatres and performers of Melbourne. We are open from 10 am to 4 pm.
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions) for the benefit of members and the general public. The Society publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, a reviewed journal and books of historical interest.
