Fodor's Vancouver & Victoria
Burke Museum Review
This 150-year-old museum takes its name from Robert O'Hara Burke who, with William Wills, became one of the first white explorers to cross Australia from south to north in 1861. Burke served as superintendent of police in Beechworth from 1856 to 1859. Not surprisingly, the small area dedicated to Burke is overshadowed by the Ned Kelly collection: his death mask, replicas of the Kelly Gang's armor, and some memorabilia that give insight into the man and his misdeeds. The museum also displays a reconstructed streetscape of Beechworth in the 1880s.
