We didn't go in as there was a sign out front for sale. It's near the police gun fight area across the bridge.

I was looking forward to taking the kids here last September holidays, but was advised by one of the locals in a museum that the blacksmith has passed away and it is no longer open. Very sad.

The blacksmith was helpful, informative and friendly. After looking around the shop (it's small but lots of interesting stuff) he pointed us in the direction of other attractions.

Interesting visit after discovering the site of Ned Kelly's capture. Well worth turning off the highway on our trip to Melbourne.

Our visit to the Armoury was the highlight of our trip to Glenrowan. The blacksmith has a great sense of humour and is more than happy to have a chat. He has some hand made replica pieces for sale. His store is over the bridge...More
