Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Today we visited the museum and found it very interesting, informative and emotional at times .
Two nice volunteers were taking care of the place, both ladies ready to talk , explain and make one welcome .
The museum only opens for a few hours on a Saturday due I believe to the lack of volunteers to man the place ,so good on you to the volunteers that do manage to keep this important historical place open .The museum is easy to find being in the Main Street in the beautiful grand old Town Hall building.
There is the ground floor then you go upstairs on the unique stone staircase.
There are so many displays and information to view.
Some great story’s like the one about the mine disaster that claimed 22 lives with only five men getting out alive ,that was very emotional learning all about that.
Good stuff on the famous Lindsay family and others who settled this town and area .
A must place to spend a bit of time when you’re in Creswick.
Great value entry, $5 or $ 4 concession.
Don’t forget only open Saturdays at the moment

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.

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

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 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.

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.
