  • Great exhibits and the amazing Eureka Flag on display (it's bigger than you expect!). I really love the permanent exhibit of different speeches and how they use different techniques to create impact.  more »

  • Love the history on show here. If you're a history buff, or just kèen to see how people used to live in the early years before the beginning of democracy in Australia, this museum will offer that. It gives an insight into how our First Nations People were treated and reacted, and into the early years during the gold rush era and the beginning of unionism in this country.
  • Interesting museum. Tells the story of Eureka, but at times it feels overshadowed by the greater display of multiculturalism and equality. As something that crucial to Australian history, to have the golden opportunity to be on the actual site of the Eureka conflict, I feel like the Eureka story is at times in the background. However, The museum itself is fantastic and is still well worth a visit.
  • I find that this place is amazing and extremely child friendly. It is fascinating and has real valuable information. I would definitely recommend this place
  • Small but very interesting museum with friendly staff. Located next to a good playground and park.
  • A small museum that holds so many memories of the Eureka Stockade and other moments of democracy throughout history. Could not be happier with the service and the experience. I got chills looking at the Eureka Flag.
