  • Ararat has a lot of history and this interactive museum is reasonably priced, staffed by friendly knowledgeable staff, well laid out and definitely worth a visit. Allow 2 hours, watch the movie to get the backstory and then be immersed in what the museum has to offer. History, mining, gold panning, Chinese culture and the part the Chinese played in founding Ararat. Before leaving make sure you go upstairs and check out the roof of this extraordinary building.
  • Knowledgeable and very friendly volunteers who add to the value of spending time here. Learn about the importance of the contribution by the Chinese around here. Very well laid out, accessible. Allow 1.5 hours at least
  • Great place to visit. It's mainly around the old chinise gold prospectors.
  • A must see. Very well done
  • Fantastic experience. Grant, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly, the displays were informative and interesting and there was even a great little gift shop. Definitely worth a visit when in Ararat.
