Heritage Hill is a beautiful place to learn about old history. There is a lovely cottage-style home called Benga House which has been preserved since the nineteenth century. There is vintage toys, furniture, pictures around the home that you can inspect which is very interesting.
My favourite aspect of the home is the markings which the parents used to mark their children's height throughout the years.
After you view the home, you must take a walk through the gorgeous gardens around the museum - the scenery makes for a great backdrop for photographs.
There's some cool artwork around the garden - mine and my cousin's favourite is the fish made out of forks!
During the school holidays and some weekends, Heritage Hill offer free events for people of the public to attend. A lot of them include things for children, like craft activities, which are always fun and live music for the adults to enjoy in the lovely gardens.
The best part about visiting this venue is that it is free! You will not need to pay to enter and you can take a look for as little or long as you like. Every school holidays my nieces or cousin and I take a stroll down to the museum to have a look and chill out in the gardens.
It is not far from Dandenong Plaza, so you can easily park there and walk down. The staff there are very lovely and informative. The first time we went, the man who was there took the time out to take us on a personal tour and gave us some interesting information about the history of Benga House.
