Vietnamese Museum 2019 – Tell us what you think

Consultation has concluded

Consultation for this project has now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated. Results are now being collated for consideration of Council .

Council is considering to support the Vietnamese Community of Australia (VCA) to establish a Vietnamese Museum at the rear of 220 Barkly Street. The proposed Vietnamese Museum of Australia (VMA) includes museum, gallery, education and community spaces which will attract visitors to Footscray and enhance the economy.

The proposed VMA will provide a much needed venue for Vietnamese contemporary cultural events in Footscray and the opportunity to educate the broader community about the important role that the Vietnamese community and Vietnamese immigration has played in Australian history. The VMA will reinforce Footscray's role as the centre of Vietnamese culture in Melbourne's West, attracting visitors and tourists to Central Footscray who will spend money in other businesses.

The VMA has so far secured $9.45million in funding from the Federal and State Governments and a pledge of $6million from a private donor, in addition to Council support for the location.

Council would like community feedback on the use of the rear of 220 Barkly Street for the purpose of a Vietnamese Museum.

Have your say by completing the online survey by 22 November 2019
