We visited the courthouse on a sunday morning. Very interesting history of the courthouse and Beechworth community. Beautiful antique furniture. Worth the small entry fee.

We were lucky enough to be invited into the courthouse for a reenactment if the Kelly trial and even got to partake in the event. The gentleman running the event was funny but more importantly informative. Was great to learn about the building as well as the history and the Kelly trial

What a fantastic piece of history. You can stand in the exact same spot that Ned Kelly stood when he was sentenced to hang. Plenty to look at and a great little museum all in all.

Decided to come and explore the historic Beechworth. We were very impressed with the old Courthouse. Beautifully restored and fantastic history lesson. Well worth the visit and not too expensive
