Leaving the west coast of Tasmania, heading to the heart of the rich mining area.
I could not find much on the town of Zeehan, so I thought I would stop for a coffee. Without much thought, I wandered over to the museum. Five hours later, I’m still gawking at the historic items this museum holds. It has taken decades to collect all these items for this incredible, not to be missed museum.
A huge outside area, blacksmith buildings, a courthouse, Masonic building, theatre and more!
Zeehan was called ‘Silver City’ and it was a huge town back in the day with all its mineral wealth.
My favourite was the Blacksmith Workshop with all the tools and they have the occasional demonstration.
A huge display of minerals and the history…
And of course, the theatre!!!
