  • Provide you a very brief history of the Cromwell. Love the way they preserved the snaps and articulated the story.they run on gold coin donation, no entry fee. It gives you a glimpse of how the city evolved. They also have a vintage bike and a car. They have some pictures of first school and mining era. Plus some vintage tools used in mining. Very well preserved.
  • Very interesting little museum about the construction of the Clyde Dam and its impact on Cromwell, notably with the flooding of Old Cromwell Town. Free entry. Good collection of gold mining items and other interesting displays. Amazing amount of pictures taken before, during and after the construction of the dam.
