  • Great museum. Very informative and I loved the interactive displays. It's not a huge place but they've really done well with the space they have. It would be best suited to older children, and most adults would like it here even if they don't have much of an interest in politics.
  • Great looking building, lots of car parking, excellent play area, but over priced to enter. The only thing of interest was the original Eureka flag. Other than that, you can find out everything online just as easily and with as much interaction. There is a cafe, but frankly there are many cafes in the town. Better off spending the money on visiting Sovereign Hill. Shame really - I understand that there's not many artefacts left from the event itself, but what would help would be to have more interactive exhibits like you have a Science Works etc. How the diggers lived. Where they came from. How the families survived on the mine fields. What it was like being a soldier. As it is now, it's a bit flat.
  • This museum has great facilities and really friendly staff. Great spot to learn about Australia
  • Very informative place great Works of art. Interesting points in Australian government
  • Honestly, I found the museum displays confusing and unfocused. It can also get quite loud with multiple large tours in the building. The Eureka Flag was cool though.
