Interesting displays with hands on. Mining looks like hard and dangerous work and the centre give you an appreciation of what it was like. There were other historical displays too about the area. Worth the visit. Great to see locals volunteering in the centre.

A must visit attraction, well set up, lots for the whole family to do, interactive displays, lots to see and great photo opportunity's. Feel what it might have been like for Brant and Todd when they first walked out of the mine.

Good for anyone interested in Tasmania's rich mining history, see how things are done in a mine, etc .... Very well laid out, good explanations. Ample parking and near shops for lunch.

This was such an interesting place. I experienced exactly what the two trapped miners experienced and I was freaked out. Really worth the visit... You need to spend a good couple of hours there.

Very fascinating and interesting from the time of the start of the mine through the rescue of the trapped miners and the eventual closure of the mine well worth the visit

The Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre is certainly well worth the visit - but do set aside a couple of hours. The site is amazing and full of so much local history also. Congratulations to the local community volunteers for their hard work in preserving these historical buildings.

Well worth a visit and made you realize what a miracle it was to get the two men out of the mine cave in. A lot to see and well worth calling in.

Well worth the visit to see what happened on that fateful day of the mine collapse. Also went to Anzac Service on 25th.
