Our collection

ANZ Banking Museum and ANZ Group Archive (1828)

The bank and museum are open to ANZ customers, the local community, and visitors to Melbourne, Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4pm (excluding public holidays). The Gothic Bank building, designed by William Wardell, is classified by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) as of world significance. The static display includes examples of gold rush era equipment, early bank branch images, ledgers, accounting machines, passbooks, firearms, uniforms, and moneyboxes. In addition to the static display, there are also temporary exhibitions on various themes.

The ANZ Group Archive collection covers key institutional records of the ANZ Banking Group and its predecessor banks (primarily Union Bank of Australia, Bank of Australasia, English Scottish and Australian Bank and several smaller predecessors and acquisitions such as Bank of Adelaide.) Please note that very few customer records are held, and none beyond 1900. The ANZ Group Archive is not open to the public, but enquiries can be made to [email protected].

Themes: Transforming and managing land and natural resources, Building Victoria's industries and workforce, Shaping cultural and creative life
