  • Missed see this on our visit four years ago only to find it is due to close. A great display of democratic events from around the world. And the Eureka flag is spectacular. Hope it is not left dormant...  more »
  • Much had changed since the last time I visited the Eureka Stockade. Someone put a museum on the place and now you have to pay to get inside ($12/person). Did you also know that the Federal Government ...  more »
  • We like history, so enjoyed this exhibition. School kids were visiting at the same time and the staff couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome at the same time. The coffee shop was nice too  more »

  • This is an absolutely amazing museum to visit. Rich history about Ballarat and there is a lot of interactive displays to enjoy. A wonderful kids area for drawing and beautiful cafe with a large outdoor area to relax in. Locals get free entry to the museum with address evidence. There is a beautiful and well priced gift shop with local artists products and more. Definitely a place worth visiting whether you're a local or tourist.
  • A great little museum with loads of interesting and exciting exhibits. The Eureka Rebellion story is well told with short films, interactive touch screens and historical objects, and broader themes of democratic ideals and processes expand from the events in 1854. The cafe is really great and serves excellent coffee, lunches and treats. Set in a pretty park, it’s a great place to spend a few hours learning about Australian history.
  • Fantastic, not what I expected. It celebrates so much. Some of the finest displays I have ever had the privilege to see. The Eureka flag has such a different meaning to me now. The famous speeches room was very moving. But nothing on the song room. Crack that code and you will be truly rewarded. Do yourself a favour.
  • Very interesting and informative. Interactive learning experience. Can spend at least one hour there. Good gift shop. Cafe had probably the worst food I have ever eaten with very unfriendly service. See the exhibit avoid the cafe.
  • Fantastic exhibition very educational for all however very upsetting to hear the center is going to be closed by local council. Shame on you for not perpetuating the learning about democracy and the extremely important history of Ballarat. Surely updating and revamping with vision would be more sensible and worthwhile.
