Missed out on tickets? You can book a regular tour from Wednesday - Sunday for our current exhibition here!

The Johnston Collection acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet, exhibit and celebrate art and heritage.

The Johnston Collection is a multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed museum that invites creatives from the broader visual arts and design communities to re-interpret the Collection through a regular program of re-installation and interventions of the permanent collection.

The museum has a superb collection of English Georgian, Regency, and Louis XV fine and decorative arts, and objets d’art which were a gift from William Robert Johnston (1911-1986) to the people of Victoria. Johnston was a prominent Melbourne-born antique dealer, real estate investor and collector. The Collection is displayed in a constantly changing domestic setting in his former residence 'Fairhall,' a historic East Melbourne townhouse.

Our friendly volunteer guides will guide visitors through the rooms of Fairhall exhibition house for a house tour of the collection. Our current exhibition 'The Best of Britain' will focus on key items in TJC that reflect the best of Britain.

This exhibition is supported by The Friends of The Johnston Collection.
