The Grainger Museum is the only purpose-built autobiographical museum in Australia. Its fascinating collection contains not only objects directly related to Percy Grainger's compositional career, such as scores and manuscripts, but also more than 100,000 items, including diaries, ethnographic objects, furniture, decorative arts, photographs, artworks, clothing and correspondence with famous and not-so-famous contemporaries. Grainger began planning the Museum after his mother's death in 1922 and it was officially opened in December 1938. The building was designed by the University's architect, John Gawler of the firm Gawler and Drummond, in close consultation with Grainger. The Museum's historical and architectural significance is recognised by the building's inclusion on the Register of the National Estate and the Victorian Heritage Register, and its classification by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria). In 1955, Grainger set down his revised Aims of the Grainger Museum, outlining his 'cosmopolitan and universalist outlook on music'. Grainger's wide ranging interests have resulted in a unique Museum with broad appeal, a must-see for fans, locals and tourists alike....

    What a surprise to come across this amazing, fun and informative Museum covering Percy Grainger's life's work - even got to play on many of the master's music machine inventions - wow that was a treat.

  • Chris Davis 5

    Very interesting little museum in a really great location. Brilliant insight into Percy Grainger's stange life

  • Brian Boyce 3

    Odd museum, created by artists own funding. Made him historically more important than the music lends to. Quite an odd chap, good to know if you are an historian of musicians.

    Great little museum, but with one major incomprehensible drawback . . There is none of his music playing anywhere !!! What was playing was a random cd of Vaughan Willams . Was a bit embarrassing to explain to my friend who commented that he liked the music being played, that it wasn't actually Grainger at all !
