Victoria’s Goldfields: Chinese Curiosities from Heritage Victoria is a collaborative exhibition between Golden Dragon Museum and Heritage Victoria. It presents small vignettes of the Chinese presence across Victoria from the mid-1800s into the 20th century and showcases the significant collection of artefacts held by Heritage Victoria that relate to and show evidence of the Chinese diaspora across the state.
With objects that are frequently small in size, but significant in their stories, Victoria’s Goldfields shows items that help to locate Chinese communities throughout Victorian history and shine a light on stories and times that have been all too often lost to history. The exhibition also speaks to the archaeological method of investigation, analysis, and identification used by heritage archaeologists as they search for relics from the past and strive to reveal their hidden and sometimes elusive stories.
