Since 1984 the Living Museum has helped the people of Melbourne's West develop and produce exhibitions about their history and region. These exhibitions are held at the Museum Resource Centre and many are on display at the Visitor Centre.

In 2012 the Living Museum recieved a grant from the Public Records Office to begin to digitise some of these exhibitions and make them available online.
As each exhibition is completed it will become accessible from the links below and right
(the blue links are active).
