Owing to the current climate, Rain Room’s record-breaking Melbourne season has been suspended. We want to thank all 86,145 of you who came along to experience the magic that is Rain Room these past nine months. It has been a privilege to present this work in Australia, and we are so grateful for the way the Melbourne public has embraced it.
We hope to have Rain Room back open as soon as possible and look forward to the opportunity to welcome everyone again.
If you have purchased tickets for an upcoming session that has been affected by this closure, Ticketek will shortly be in touch with information on refunds. If you would like first access to tickets when a new season is announced, please register via the link below.
Please note that Rain Room is closed until further notice.
Rain Room is an immersive art installation that allows you to walk through a downpour of continuous rain without getting wet. Motion sensors detect the movements of the human body as visitors navigate through the darkened space, becoming performers in this intersection of art, technology and nature. Please allow 30-40 minutes from your ticketed session time to experience Rain Room. This allows for your introduction to the work, 20 minutes inside Rain Room and time to explore the gift shop after.
The No. 16 Tram runs from the Melbourne’s CBD to St Kilda, with several stops located along Fitzroy Street. The No. 96 also runs from Melbourne’s north to St Kilda. We recommend disembarking at Stop 135 – Acland Street, opposite the Prince Hotel. If driving, on-site parking is available via the Jackson Street entrance to the Prince Hotel carpark, off-street parking is available on Acland and Fitzroy Streets.

We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your session to ensure you have adequate time to park and store your belongings in provided lockers. Session start times are to be strictly observed. Patrons who arrive more than five minutes after the start time may not be admitted to the exhibition. Should you miss your scheduled time, we will endeavour to accommodate you if a subsequent spot is available. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a rescheduled visit
To reduce the possibility of getting wet, visitors are advised to progress slowly and sensibly through the Rain Room. Should you move too quickly, you may catch the drops of rain that have already fallen ahead of you. Visitors are discouraged from wearing dark, shiny or reflective fabric. Flat-soled shoes must always be worn (no heels please). Oh, and you won’t need an umbrella!
Over 500,000 people have experienced the Rain Room internationally and it is suitable for everyone. We request that children under 13 are accompanied by an adult and advised not to run or play. Children under the age of three are free but need to remain by the adult ticketholder’s side. Wheelchairs and mobility scooters can be taken into the exhibition provided they weigh less than 500kg and are less than 1.5m in length.
BLACK STAR PASTRY
Iconic Sydney patisserie, Black Star Pastry, has popped up in St Kilda. Best known for its Strawberry Watermelon Cake – of which one million slices a year are served from four Sydney stores – don’t miss trying “the world’s most Instagrammed cake”. Black Star Pastry is located on Acland Street, directly below Rain Room.
