Welcome to the Geelong Gaol Museum
The Geelong Gaol Museum is housed in the former H.M. Geelong Gaol.
It showcases the history of the Gaol which has overlooked the township of Geelong for over 170 years, and the men, women and children who spent time behind the walls.
The Geelong Gaol opened its doors in April 1853 and continuously operated in one form or another for 138 years being the longest continually operated gaol in Victoria.
Since its closure in 1991 it has been used as the location of a number of films and television series. Betwen 1995 and 2019, it was run as a museum hosted by the Rotary Club of Geelong.
The Geelong Gaol Museum started in June 2019.
The Geelong Gaol Museum is open between 1-4pm everyday from December 26 – January 31 when it will revert back to weekends, school holidays and public holidays.
Day tours are available for groups outside these times.
