Always good to revisit these important places and refresh the history memory. The Centre is well set out and displays easy to follow. There is a great gift shop and very good cafe.

We spent a very interesting time here. The Museum is very interactive and contains some fascinating artifacts and historical material to wonder about. While it deals with the Eureka Stockade incident is also puts it into historical and universal context. The gift shop is also...More

Anyone going to Ballarat needs to visit this place, steeped in history, the original flag on display, what we have today in Australia is the result of what happened here on December 3rd 1854
