The Grainger Museum at the University of Melbourne was constructed for Australian-born composer, pianist and saxophonist Percy Grainger between 1935 and 1938.
The idea for an autobiographical museum began to evolve in Grainger's mind in the early 1920s as a place for "all very intimate letters or notes should be deposited in an Australian Grainger Museum, preferably in birth-town Melbourne".
Grainger took an active part in the design of the building which boasts an extensive collection of Grainger memorabilia including personal artefacts and musical instruments.
