  • Nice local museum. Lots to see, approximately 20 rooms of artifacts. Shares a lot of local history - school, mines, shops and surrounding suburbs.

  • Honestly, for 6 bucks entry you can't go wrong. Plenty of themed rooms and if you read through everything you could easily kill half a day here.
