The Beechworth Historic Courthouse is among the few remaining living history museums in Australia and one of Beechworth’s most visited attractions. Built in 1858 and in continuous service for 131 years, the Beechworth Courthouse retains its original furniture and fittings. The Courthouse Law Library is also recognised as being of outstanding national significance with many rare books held in the collection.

We’re excited to announce that the Beechworth Courthouse Kelly Trials Exhibition will open on Monday 29 April 2024.

Following an official invite-only opening in the morning, the exhibition will be open to the public from approximately 2:00pm onwards.

The exhibition explores the role of the Beechworth Courthouse in more than 40 trials and hearings during the Kelly outbreak of 1878 – 1880.

Upon its reopening, the exhibition will welcome visitors daily from 10:00am - 3:00pm. Tickets will be available online or from the Beechworth Visitor Information Centre.

Ramp access and service animal friendly.
