Museums Victoria's origins date back to 1854, with the founding of the National Museum of Victoria and the establishment, in 1870, of the Industrial and Technological Museum of Victoria (later known as the Science Museum of Victoria). By proclamation of the Museums Act 1983 (Vic.), these two institutions were amalgamated to form what is known today as Museums Victoria, governed by the Museums Board of Victoria. In 1996, Museums Victoria took over custodianship of the World Heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building.
