Amazing layout & knowledgeable staff
Apr. 2021
This museum is a real gem. Perfectly laid out with wonderful displays. Tells the history of the German influx from South Australia to start building the local store.

See photos for some of the displays. The staff are extremely knowledgeable on the history of Jindera (population 2,200). The tea rooms next door also do wonderful Devonshire Teas.

You will need a few hours to wander through this wonderful museum, but it is well worth the entry fees of $7 Adults & $5 Concession.

A Gem of a Museum - worth the trip
Jan. 2021 • Couples
This wonderful little museum is only about a 20-30 minute drive from Albury. It is replete with treasures, upstairs, downstairs, in the cellar, in the grounds. There are great examples of agricultural and early machinery, huts and sheds. It is a wonderful place to take children, to show the early history of European settlement in this area.

There's a lovely little tearoom, where you can obtain a delicious Devonshire Tea, staffed by lovely volunteer ladies. You can have tea outside under a tree, or inside, as you wish. There's plenty to see and do, even if you're elderly / disabled and can't get upstairs.

Well worth a visit. Bring your kids. Bring your Gran.

What a gem! So much to see. Spread out over a couple of acres, this place has displays of everything from household objects & machinery, a few different houses with different construction methods. Beautiful gardens & lovely knowledgeable staff.

My wife's family includes early German settlers who travelled by bullock dray from Adelaide to Jindera and surrounding areas of Victoria in the 1860's. This fantastic museum provides an insight into the tough life they must have endured in establishing themselves as farmers in this area. A wonderful collection of household items, farm implements and different standards of housing, with rooms authentically decorated and furnished. A great place to take kids to learn and appreciate how their forebears lived in such a different time.

A lovely spot to explore and learn about pioneer history. I enjoyed looking at the wagons, strolling through the gardens and sitting under the shady trees.

Thanks Kerry, because the museum sits on 2 acres of land, there is plenty to explore. Many visitors are unaware of hoe large the museum is and what it contains. Thanks for visiting

Took the grand kids to Jindera Pioneer Museum and was amazed at how much there is to see. The grounds are lovely with tables and chairs so you can bring a picnic. Had fun asking the kids what they thought some of things were. Great collection of machinery and waggons. Plus the different buildings really showed how people lived in the late 1800s.

Well worth a visit

We thoroughly enjoyed looking through the Jindera Pioneer Museum. The volunteers are enthusiastic and helpful. The entrance is through a large room set up as a general store with interesting collections and old store drawers labelled with goods in demand at the time - corks, condies crystals, "pills and powders", sulphur etc!
Amongst many other items, beautifully crafted old garments feature in another room.
The connected house displays kitchen, lounge, bedrooms etc set up with furniture and decorative pieces of the time. Out the back are interesting old drays and farming machinery, a blacksmith shop, and several huts set up reflecting the time and status of their occupants. Everything is well displayed, and without dust and cobwebs!
There was to be an evening camp-fire gathering on the lawn at the back, and meat cooking on the spit etc smelt delicious.
The museum is a real credit to the pro-active committee and volunteers.
