What people are saying:

Melbourne's Gold Museum is located in Sovereign Hill on the outskirts of the city, which was once a holy place for gold rushing. This museum houses many locally excavated gold ore, as well as cultural relics and scenes that reflect all aspects of the life and production of the gold prospectors at that time, so that everyone can fully understand the hardships of the gold rush life at that time and the mood of getting rich overnight. Wonderful and worth visiting.

    A journey back to the past

    We visited the Gold Museum during a family trip to Ballarat. We didn’t take the package deal as it was overpriced. The museum was also a bit overpriced to our liking but offered good educational value...
