  • The only remaining heritage buildings from the TOP end of the old Cromwell Gold Mine period town. I recall walking up the old main street holding my mother hand as a young child BEFORE the Dam flooded most of the old town
  • This is a neat place to visit and get the low down about the area. Lots on display. I took my time and spent s couple of hours just wondering as round taking it all in. Staff are friendly and the toilets very vlean. Highly recommend
  • Really enjoyed looking through. Would have been great with more interaction. E.g. a real blacksmith etc.
  • Love this place. Cromwell's jewel in its crown. Sunday's Farmers market are always cool for seasonal produce, a coffee and a mooch.
  • Nice walk through a series of rebuilt part of the historical town centre. The walk is nice and gives a chance to look at how settlers lived in the 1800s. Unfortunately the shops were all closed when I went (national holiday).
