Reasonable local museum
Nov. 2018 • Friends
I felt the entry fee was a little steep but the museum is staffed by volunteers and the profits no doubt go to the upkeep of the museum. On the ground floor there is an interesting display about the gold rush and the mine flood disaster that saw 22 miners lose their lives. Elsewhere there is a room dedicated to the Lindsay family who were residents of the town. (It's a shame that their house was demolished in 1969.) This includes some artworks by these prolific artists. Other paintings and artefacts are displayed in the building and the shire council chambers seem quite intact (if a large boardroom table and paintings of former council or shire administrators is of interest to you). It's a reasonable local museum but could be better. Children would find it uninteresting and there is not much to sustain anyone's interest for much more than half an hour.

Its a museum !!! Yawn
Dec. 2016 • Family
if youve had a day or weekend in creswick enjoying all has to offer for a small town its got lots but when its time to go do the museum last and the kids will be in the car begging too. But for the ppl that are interested in history its for you lots of photos of old creswick and storys of the "local" families and the mining times one local seriously tried to covince me creswick was the place the "Eureka stockade" happened" in creswick now thats proud of your home town didnt see that in the museum though they must have overlooked the little insignificant thing hey. When in small towns I always take a look if not the local history the ppl maning the museums are always l o n g time locals if not 3rd generation they will have the mail on everything else, like fishing spots, backroads, and if you hang around to long you'll end up taking the best recipe for scones jam. take a look makes them feel wanted

WW1 and Lindsay family buff's happy time!
Jun. 2017 • Solo
This is a little gem, a real must for those interested in the Lindsay clan, and how 'another famous Lindsay' made WW1 reach beyond the century and touch the emotions of the present. The watercolours of the 'golden age' were exquisite. And of course the magic pudding greeting at the entrance was dramatic. Well staffed.

Great local museum
Oct. 2016 • Friends
Great community museum located in a wonderful architectural gem dating from 1876. Interesting and varied collection very well presented. It also has regular special exhibitions, often to do with the famous Lindsay family of artists.

Wonderful insight into Creswick and the goldfields area
Oct. 2016 • Couples
Located in the old Creswick Town Hall, this museum has 8 separate rooms of history about notable families like the Lindsay's and Peacock's, the goldfields and nearby towns. Smeaton featured when we visited and Allendale is scheduled next. Their is some beautifully maintained artifacts, furniture and collection of photographs.

Historical based books about Creswick and the surrounding towns are available for purchase.

Fantastic history of Creswick and district on display. This includes art works, artefacts' etc. They have a featured theme on display which changes 3 or 4 times each year. One of the best Museums I've seen.

Showcasing Creswick history
May 2016 • Couples
Creswick sure knows how to put together a great little museum to showcase it's history! A wonderful collection of photographs and items give visitors a good sense of the years gone by in Creswick. At $5 admission (adult), the Creswick Museum in the heart of town is a must do.
