Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre reviews
The entire display was well done with information at every turn. Loved the miners hut. Stan at the front office was a miner who has worked there & was a wealth of information more »
This is a must see. The history and events that happened here are amazing. Great informative staff and great displays. Would liked to go underground but you still get a sense of what it was like... more »
Nearly skipped this place and would have missed one of the most fun museums in Australia, nay, the world. Not at all what I was expecting. Absolutely top notch. Wife and kids entirely agreed. Full of hands-on exhibits and old world nostalgia. Cannot recommend this place enough. We all wished we had allowed a full day just for this museum.
WOW!!! I didn't really know what to expect, but what a wonderful surprise! The museum site is quite extensive and the kids had a fabulous time exploring all the nooks and hidden corners. We even got climb the Headframe. The lovely staff gave the kids a souvenir at the end.
