In Government & Community Services

Originally Built as the Beechworth Athenaeum in 1857, The Burke Museum is one of Australia’s oldest museums and is considered a ‘Museum of Museums’ with its significant collections from the 1800’s and contemporary internally produced and touring exhibitions. After the death of Beechworth's former Superintendant of Police, Robert O'Hara Burke at Coopers Creek in 1861, the Athenaeum was renamed in his honour as The Robert O’Hara Burke Memorial Museum.

Now more commonly known as the Burke Museum, it combines traditional didactic exhibition settings, combined with modern technology and interpretative techniques to bring the visitor a unique perspective on Beechworth’s place in Australian History.
