“Definitely worth a look”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

My wife and I decided to have a quick look and ended up staying over 2hrs.Plenty of video information and a wonderful art and union banner display as well as an old miners cottage, pub and police station. Entry is by donation ($5.00) but considered worth while

“A Very Good Museum”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is for its size a very interesting museum covering the early history of the goldfields and local townships ,we took the tour which was well worth it with a very knowleable guide

After the guided tour we spent a couple of hours looking at the outside displays and the very good inside displays

The only other thing we would have liked to do was to go up to the top of the Ivanhoe Headframe but unfortunately the lift was being serviced

Other than that a great way to spend a few hours


Good for all ages
