  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very informative nice friendly staff and the only tourist venue that dosent charge locals but dose ask if they can possibly give a gold coin donation. Some displays however could of been a bit lower so people in whelchairs could veiw them better. I will defently recomend a visit to this wonderful place.
  • 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.
