The highlight of a visit to Australia’s newest museum—especially after you’ve learned the story of the Eureka Uprising—is the sight of the original Eureka flag, made from petticoat fabric by the women of the uprising and now enshrined here. The museum features an evocative, dimly lit purpose-built display gallery for the beautiful, fragile blue-and-white Eureka Flag. Interactive exhibitions look at the evolution and future of democracy and associated issues such as culture, civics, history, and citizenship. It also has a cafe, gift shop, and gardens.
