From the city's first brick, to Moomba relics and a significant collection of public art, Melbourne’s most significant objects can be seen together for the first time on a new website. Since the 1850's the City of Melbourne has collected 8000 items of cultural material valued at $64 million, including public art and memorials, mayoral portraits, contemporary art, historical artefacts, photography and many other treasures. The website comprises nine categories: treasures; public art; Council and Town Hall; contemporary art; managing a city; events; Aboriginal Melbourne; photography and miscellaneous Melbourne. More than 1000 items have already been uploaded to the site, with another 3000 to go online over the next year. Visit the  City Collection website  to browse the collection.
