A lot of care and attention to detail has been made in presenting the courthouse as it would have been. The interactive voices that happen in the courtroom will catch you by surprise but just sitting and listening was a worthwhile experience. With the Ned Kelly Museum next door these two make for an great look back at our history

It was fun as you were allowed to sit in the judges chair and anywhere in the original court room. You have audio you can hear court cases in the back ground and becomes very real. Here we experienced time warp in history with the audio, architecture and interactive play. I have photos I need to download when I settle... More

This court house has been well looked after with much information about the goings on, and the various characters who have been through its doors. Spent a lot of time in here reading about the various uses and cases; and or course reading more about Ned Kelly and his mother, Ellen.

A fabulous old courthouse full of interesting exhibits, beautifully maintained and presented. Part of the historic tour presented by well informed volunteers from the local historic society.

Because they were still using this as a working court until relatively recently, they have managed to keep it looking as a working court - very good look into the past.

I was given a real history lesson as I didnt realise that Ned Kelly was tried in Beechworth. I will need to go back to learn more.

Wow to step back into the past. the guide was so informative and to be able to have this piece of history tucked away and to discover how our country was formed was really great

Really well preserved courthouse. The young girl behind the counter on entry was so friendly and a mine of information - she really made the visit. The exhibits were really well presented - such an interesting part of Australian history! Highly recommend a visit, 30-45 mins would cover it.

An amazing piece of history preserved, Beechworth courthouses do not dissapoint! The feeling of being able to stand where Ned Kelly once stood (and was prosecuted) is thrilling. child friendly, mostly pram friendly, very kind staff, very educational.

It was all interesting with some audio clips piped into the rooms. The host was very welcoming and helpful. Our four year old JUST held it together as he was frightened by the audio and the prospect that Ned Kelly may have still been around (or that he may inadvertently end up in Gaol). The search for items sheet kept... More
