  • 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 cafĂ© inside with a nice atmosphere, good food and coffee. The adjacent park has a playground and swimming pool.
  • Really interesting, for an odd concept. Lots of stuff in there that is all spun off eureka stockade. It works. Only let down is that it is mostly digital content that can probably be found elsewhere.
  • Nice place. May be little expensive.
  • 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.
  • A must visit!!! Walk from city to here and then enjoy an integral part of Australian history done very well.
