ABOUT LYON HOUSEMUSEUM + HOUSEMUSEUM GALLERIES
The Lyon Housemuseum was established by Corbett and Yueji Lyon in Melbourne in 2010. The first of its kind internationally, the Housemuseum uniquely combines family residence and private museum into a single, architecturally designed building. In 2010, Larry’s List named the Housemuseum ‘one of the world’s 10 most exciting buildings of private museums.’ Through its innovative juxtaposition of art and living, the Housemuseum challenges conventional ideas of public and private domains and explores new relationships between art and viewer. The Lyon family live in the Housemuseum and open the building and collection for pre-booked public tours on designated days each year. Bookings via https://lyonhousemuseum.com.au/visit/tours/
The Housemuseum Galleries is a new public museum, sitting side by side with the original Housemuseum, is operated by the Lyon Foundation – a not-for-profit museum entity established by Corbett and Yueji Lyon in 2012. Having opened in March 2019, the new Galleries welcomes visitors six days each week throughout the year. The Galleries provide a series of expansive exhibition spaces to experience and explore inspirational and adventurous contemporary works of art, architecture and design.
