Rain Room by Random International Tickets

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. Please note that if you arrive more than 5 minutes after your scheduled session time, you will not be able to enter Rain Room. We will endeavour to accommodate you in a later session if a subsequent spot is available, but this would be dependent on other no-shows. 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, forward-facing strollers and mobility scooters can be taken into the exhibition provided they weigh less than 500kg and are less than 1.5m in length.

Rain Room ticket holders will receive 20% off their entire bill at Prince Dining Room, located in The Prince Hotel, directly under Rain Room. Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner Prince Dining Room's food is designed to share and inspired by the robust flavours and spices of the Mediterranean and Middle East. Rain Room ticket must be presented. Offer only redeemable on day of Rain Room Session.

Random International
Art Group RANDOM INTERNATIONAL run a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. Founded in 2005 by Hannes Koch and Florian Ortkrass, today they work with larger teams of diverse and complementary talent out of studios in London and Berlin. Questioning aspects of identity and autonomy in the post-digital age, the group's work invites active participation. Random International explores the human condition in an increasingly mechanised world through emotional yet physically intense experiences. The artists aim to prototype possible behavioural environments by experimenting with different notions of consciousness, perception, and instinct.

The Jackalope Art Collection was founded in 2016 by Louis Li, ahead of the group's debut hotel opening on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. With a background in filmmaking, Li drives the collection's curatorial concept - to present rebellious pieces as a conceptual layer in storytelling. Often immersive, these pieces are used to create transformative experiences in hospitality, taking guests on a journey through an ever-evolving world of emotions and expressions. The collection currently comprises international works by Rick Owens, Rolf Sachs and Tracey Emin, Emily Floyd, Nick van Woert and Tatsuo Miyajima.

ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) is Australia's national museum of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art - situated at the very heart of Melbourne in Fed Square, and the world's most visited moving image museum. In mid-2019 ACMI will undergo a visionary redevelopment, transforming the museum into one of the world's leading public institutions for screen culture and innovation, connecting audiences of industry, education and the public. Its doors will close from mid-2019 to mid-2020.
