If they didn't have the actual Eureka Flag, this museum would be quite ordinary. It's interactive, yes, but it's very small - really only one room. And I thought expensive for what it was.
This was next door to where we were staying as well and went there to see the original Eureka flag and wow was I shocked at the size of it. Very good displays and nice history.
The interactive displays are awesome. Well worth a longer visit. We popped in to kill some time before our next appointment and will definitely coming back with the rest of our family.
I enjoyed visiting here. My son (6) was probably a little young for it, but was still interested. Lots to see and do. There's a café inside with a nice atmosphere, good food and coffee. The adjacent park has a playground and swimming pool.
Great introduction to the Eureka Stockade and nicely set in the context of other protest movements. The museum includes interactive features such as learning about the Eureka flag and it's southern cross then designing your own flag and symbols. There is a multi-media show of great speeches by social justice leaders such as Dr Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela alongside Peter Lalor of the Stockade. These are annotated with information about the rhetorical devices of great speeches. The Museum also has a very enjoyable cafe with native foods and gifts. During our visit there was also a competition of quilts on social justice subjects.
Have only been to the cafe, Saltbush. Simple delicious food using local bush ingredients.
I visited the first day of Bling exhibition. Quiet educational.
Please please please renew the tattered ripped Eureka flag. Its a disgrace.
