The museum has different displays at different times of the year. Some are not suitable for children.

I love visiting Museum with my children,especially on the school holidays. These is always something interesting for my teenagers and my 6 years old. We went to all of the exbitions since we moved to Wagga in 2014. It is free entrance,staff is very nice, polite and always ready to answer any questions.

Excellent Museum in an interesting location. We attended a talk on the Tichbourne Trials as well as viewing the exhibits in the Museum both were worthwhile. The talk on the Tichbourne trial was well presented and interesting. We will be visiting again

Quite extensive display of Wagga Wagga history of people, events, places, people and interesting agricultural, sporting and personal objects. The Dolls House was worth a room to itself but should have been better lit. The smaller museum in the Civic Centre area was for travelling works and, although the architectural display was reasonably interesting, the second one was appalling

There is no charge to look through the museum we made a donation as it was really interesting with a lot to look at both inside and out. It opens from 10am anf closes at 4pm.

Interesting, educational and entertaining for our family. Decent space dedicated to a historical identity issue in the late last century? We could not relate to. There was a small collection of door knobs and locks! The children's area had some good dress-ups and enviro-friendly deco. The outside area was full of big farm machines. Good for a quick visit.

The museum was well set out and is well worth a visit. It gives a good history of the area and the people who made it what it is. There was also a Midnight Oil Exhibition on in another pavilion which was just great. It was a comprehensive history of their rise to fame. Attached to the museum is a... More
