When we first visited the Lyon Housemuseum in Kew I have to admit, I was completely dumbfounded. Though it originally opened in 2009, somehow, this incredible project had slipped under our radar until this year, and, in fact, despite our best efforts, it still remains largely unknown to most Melburnians.
An impressive family home to art collectors Corbett and Yueji Lyon and their two grown-up daughters Carlin and Jaqlin, this family home also serves as an expertly curated art museum, housing the Lyon’s spectacular collection of Australian contemporary art. On designated days each week, the home is open to the public via private tours conducted by members of the family!
