For visitors particularly interested in learning about the gold rush of Stawell, the museum is a treasure chest of information.

Some of the items on display include (but are not limited to):
– Local Gold Mining history
– Historical Photos
– Apparel
– Industrial, Commercial and Domestic items
– H.M.A.S Stawell items and history
– Goldfields Crime and Court Cases

Stawell Historical Society also features living history videos, as well as tons of educational resources.

The museum is open from 10am to 4pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays – unless you have a special appointment booked, and are located in a modern, custom built research centre and climate controlled storage rooms, attached to the rear of the historic 1860 Pleasant Creek Court House and beside the original Stawell Shire Hall building.

If you would like to become a member, please contact them today – it’s only $15 per year.

To find out more about the rich history, keep up to date on their Facebook, official website, the Stawell Times-News articles, or better still, come and visit the Research Centre and Museum in person. The enthusiastic team of volunteers are keen to share our history with you!
