MELBOURNE’S Immigration Museum could be renamed and have a new focus as part of a review of the Flinders St building’s operations.

Museums Victoria bosses confirmed a “process of reimagining’’ the museum had begun with changes likely.

Spokeswoman Anna Quinn said the Immigration Museum had celebrated Victoria’s multicultural communities for more than 20 years.

A new name has yet to be chosen but the Museum of Shared Humanity is believed to be one possible choice.

The Immigration Museum opened in 1998 in the restored Old Customs House

— built in 1835 by John Pascoe Fawkner — to celebrate our multicultural and migrant heritage.

What is in a name?

How many govt departments have the same name they had 20 or 50 or 100 years ago.

Dont fear change, embrace it when it is positive. Thumbs Up

That proposed name is hardly positive. I went to a wedding their two months ago and on the invitation it stated it was at the Immigration Museum, if the invitation had said "Museum of Shared Humanity", I would have taken the invitation as a joke.

Stupid. You would have no idea what the museum is about. Museum of shared humanity could be about cooking or knitting. Immigration Museum tells you that it is a museum about, dur, immigration.

Gives it a different positive vibe like when I was a kid, getting out at 5AM to do my paperboy round. Felt so much better about myself when they told me I was actually a ''media distribution officer''

Come off it PT, I doubt too many kids doing paper rounds all those years ago would know who or what was a "media distribution officer ", a paper boy yes, but a MDO, no.

Change is good except for when people get their noses rubbed in it. Effectively they are being told that they were wrong and some smart arse with nothing to do will correct their errors

Shrunky, for the term ''shared humanity'' to offend you, does that mean all humans are not equal in your view?

I remember the Federal Department of Immigration before it was the Department of Home Affairs. Department of Shared Humanity would be ok as well.Thumbs Up
