Museum Hours, Address, Access, Phone, and Email.

We welcome museum visitors 10 am – 3pm Tuesdays and Fridays, and offer group tours and school tours by appointment. We are closed on Victorian public holidays.

Our location is “Koomba Park”, 15 Mountain Highway, Wantirna, Vic 3152. We’re close to the intersection of Burwood Highway and Mountain Highway.

Most areas of the Museum offer full wheelchair/walking frame access. The phone +61 3 9800 5535 and email (info@ajm.org.au) are usually only answered when the museum is open.

Drop In Visits (free)

During visitor hours you are welcome to enjoy our current exhibit, listen to jazz, use our reference library, and borrow a book from our lending library (if you are a member). A guide will be happy to show you how jazz donations (recordings, videos, posters, etc.) are registered, processed, and archived. Plus you can visit our shop, which is full of great Australian jazz recordings, including many custom CD’s compiled by the AJM.

Group Tours ($25/person) and School Tours (free)

Group and school visitors enjoy everything that a drop in visitor would enjoy, plus: a comprehensive tour of the museum, including what goes on behind the scenes; lunch, afternoon tea, or light refreshments; and a live jazz performance by a jazz band (Feb thru Oct). Our minimum group size is 20 with a maximum of 40.

Members and friends are welcome to “tag along” with group tours, for the same per-head charge. Check out our calendar for upcoming group tours.

Tours can be scheduled by prior arrangement between 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, or evenings, any day except Saturday and public holidays.

Advance booking is essential.

  • To book a group tour, contact Joy Farnam on 9800 5535 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Fridays between 10:00 and 3:00, or email info@ajm.org.au
  • To book a school tour, contact Marina Pollard on 9781 4972, or email mpollard@ajm.org.au   If the school tour you are booking is for school musicians, you may also want to schedule a free school jazz seminar at the same time. Marina Pollard can help you with both.
