I have been to a few museums in my time but I would have to say this is one of the better ones. Modern museums could... More

I think the thing we most enjoyed was the film, which was quite long but like watching a collection of home... More

What a pleasant surprise. This museum is manned by fabulous volunteers. There is a huge variety of artefacts depicting the local area. As my husband and I enjoy history, we easily spent two hours walking around.

Full of lots of old Australiana type exhibits and surrounded by the smell of musty age, you feel like your stepping back in time. Very interesting and great for kids and adults alike.
