Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We mainly toured the museum section and for a regional town, it was quite impressive. Overall the whole centre helped our kids pass time for few hours easily and the cafe inside served a good coffee

I am not an art lover just went there to see the museum. Well worth it. Free as well. The wool dray is huge! Lots of information about the history of Dubbo. So don’t let the name put you off cos the museum is great!

Very interesting place to visit which gives you a look into history of Dubbo and Australia as well as new age art in another section.There was a lovely cafe located in the centre which we didn’t try but the food looked great.

Good place to visit. Great set up. Lots to learn. They even have an old classroom set up which is a lot of fun to look at. They also have a lovely cafe for breakfast or lunch and you can sit inside or outside. Outside is beautiful as it overlooks the oval. Nice place to go.

Its a nice place to visit to know local history. Its a FREE ENTRY !

It take about 30-40 min in Culture Centre and same time in the Art Gallery. I would recommend early hours just after 10am opening and start your day with a nice breakfast at the cafe too.

The museum section had an interesting display of Political cartoons that were amusing. The cultural museums offered snippets of local history but only a small section on the indigenous inhabitants history. Little is expounded of how colonial settlement brutally pushed them off their land which hugely affected their culture and lifestyle. In moving towards reconciliation we must acknowledge what happened to them rather than display a few historical artifacts, The displays of European settlement were excellently curated with fascinating relics and historical objects. Well worth a visit. The art gallery had a display of modern art paintings and installations. To me they were a waste of space!!

We appreciate your views on visiting our museum, we too acknowledge the representation of indigenous culture within our regions story is underwhelming. It is hoped we can address that in the near future, but would like to assure you our Region is investing in its First Nations People and telling their stories within the Wiradjuri Tourism Centre due to open in 2021/22. We hope you will come back to see this significant cultural offering. Thank you for sharing your views on our Gallery Exhibitions, one of the wonderful things about Art is that it is subjective and what moves one person may create an entirely different feeling for another. We do appreciate you taking the time to explore the Gallery, our exhibitions change every couple of months - if you would like to follow our Facebook or Instagram Page you can stay updated on our Exhibitions and perhaps visit again.

Nice place. Having a coffee as I type this review. Very nice, very relaxed. Lost a star because I would like to see a permanent display of First Australian culture and history. Otherwise, worth a visit.👍
