The launch of the Beechworth Courthouse Kelly Trials Exhibition has been delayed. 

As is often the case when working on old buildings, surprises and curve balls are not uncommon. Due to the discovery of a small piece of asbestos in the ceiling cavity, the Courthouse site has been shut down while further testing takes place.

Though it's disappointing, we're taking every precaution. Stay tuned for updates on the new launch date in early 2024. We appreciate your patience and can’t wait to share the new exhibition with you next year.
