Gold Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Gold Museum extends Sovereign Hill’s story of Ballarat – a majestic provincial city built on the wealth derived from the great Australian goldrushes of the 1850s.

Discover the beauty and power of gold as you view an impressive and valuable collection of gold nuggets, priceless gold artefacts and gold coins.

A magnificent glass fronted building with commanding views, The Gold Museum offers an award winning gift shop specialising in the sale of gold nuggets and Australian-made gold jewellery and fine giftware.

Exhibitions change throughout the year, refer to website for more details.
