I don't usually go for museums, but this one was excellent. The displays were simple but professionally put together and each contained just the right amount of information to engage you and inform you. We came away with a good sense of the history of the local area. Highly recommended.

Congratulations Clunes! This is an impressive series of installations and displays that do very much give you a sense of the history and culture of Clunes. I particularly loved the recreation of the famous painting! The building is very wheelchair friendly and the admission cost of $5/$4 is very reasonable. Thank you to the Village who put this together with... More

We visited on a quiet day and were the only people there so we were able to take our time admiring all the artifacts and reading the comprehensive and interesting history of Clunes. The building is totally accessible and includes a library and information centre. My only quibble was the use of American spelling in the information on display.

The collection is well edited and presented. The dioramas are fun and informative. The information displayed contextualises and explains the relevance of the objects on display.

After a revamp the Clunes Museum is now known as The Warehouse. If you are visiting this picturesque town you should make the museum your first port of call. Spread over two levels in a heritage building dated to 1860, you will find many artefacts associated with the local farming and mining industries. There are recreations of what life was... More

Great to visit local mining history and encourage maintaining our history. One of the original sites for gold finds in vic. Locals are building history specifically for the area. Would have liked more link to other regions in the area or more local detail. On the right track and I suspect further information will consolidate in the future.

Have you ever had a dream of finding gold?...getting rich quickly?...well here in Clunes as well as in all Victorian previous gold mining sides you can get that feeling which came from middle of 19th century. Small town build quickly that time to accomodate all searchers of gold . Now we can only have an imagination of what happened here... More

We stopped into Clunes while visiting the Ballarat area. Just like the museum, there are a few more old buildings to see if you like history. The museum was no longer open from what we could see, but many of the old shops are only open on the week ends.
