This museum was a great representation of the mining and colonial life in the area. They are working on including more information about the Chinese railway workers and their lives. Our guide was very open about this. We loved the exhibits and the information on the indigenous history of the area.

We read great reviews on this place so knew it was gonna be good but were still thoroughly impressed! The Museum is mostly run by passionate local volunteers eager to share so much information. We went with our young boys, 4 and 6 who were as excited as we were! The artifacts, items, and displays are rich with history, but the staff adds to the experience by giving more background stories and information. You wouldnt have necessarily expected to see dinosaur bones/fossils, indigenous spearheads, and even a genuine US civil war Generals sword with a local connection 😳 just to name a few. Happy to have the opportunity to soak this in and also support such a cool and unique destination. Dont hesitate to make it part of your plan!!

This little museum has a very large collection of artifacts presenting the history of the area. A lot of photos and information. I have spent a couple of hours exploring and it was not enough. I am planning to come back. They have unique items to look at – like a cleaner vacuum made in 1907(!). Great collection of gems and rocks, and fossils. I highly recommend visiting this museum. Don't forget to live a donation. Such places need our help.

My nearly 9-year-old spent over an hour at the museum and enjoyed every minute there, learning about local history of First Nations inhabitants and white settlers. Ask for the scavenger hunt, which is more involved than just ticking things off a list, and really got my child engaged with the various outstanding displays.

Now, I don't just give this place a great review because my mom was a founding member - the museum has really worked hard to put out great displays of the local area and people over the years. Find out when it is open, and plan on spending a couple of hours touring through it. Lots of good restuarants close by, so you can make a nice afternoon out of it - you WON'T be disappointed..........
