Goldfields Historical Museum

Museum in Goldfields Towns

An interesting historical museum with a range of relics and stories. It has a replica of the 72kg Welcome Stranger, the world’s largest alluvial nugget, found in Moliagul in 1869. It was found by John Deason and Richard Oates – who hid it for two days before concealing it in a wagon and taking it to the London Chartered Bank (87 Broadway) on the main street.

They occasionally open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
