Her Majesty’s maintains a substantial collection of archives and memorabilia from the last 120 years. This is a valuable resource, covering not only the history of the theatre itself but, also, the development of cultural life and entertainment in Melbourne from the late nineteenth century right through to the present day.

Her Majesty’s is always grateful for contributions to the Archives. If you have any material relating to the theatre that you would like to donate, or have an enquiry that we may be able to answer, please contact our Archivist, Mary Murphy, at or on 03 8643 3300.
