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.
