Hard to say more than others have. A great interactive visit, and helpful volunteer staff. This is a place you should not miss when visiting Tasmania. Good for adults and children.

I remember watching the Beaconsfield mine disaster unfold on the news during April / May 2006 so was very interested to see the site for myself. Entry was $16 per adult. They’re open every day from 9.30-4.30. There is lots of old machinery, some social history exhibits and a display about the rescue of Todd and Brant. It’s well done and worth a visit.

I have wanted to come here for some time. Naturally there is footage and displays on the drama 14 years ago but also honours the heritage of the mine with working parts plus showing the conditions, the safety gear change room etc. it is not just for little ones, although there is plenty for them, but also interesting for adults too.

A lot of thought has gone into the collection of items and the layout. Could not get the QR code’s to work that would allow extra information. The mine tragedy brought back memories of watching it on TV. Interesting way to spend some time.

I really enjoyed the experience of visiting this Mine and heritage centre, it’s a real trip down memory lane with lots of antique machinery and equipment it’s brilliantly put together. Then the mine component is equally impressive getting to see how the gold mine did work not only recently but a century ago as well. It has some great information and detail of the Beaconsfield mine disaster that is exceptional to read and see. Job well done by the heritage trust.
