Spent several hours here, very interesting. Only thing I missed was hearing Walzing Matilda playing in the background. It was sung in the theatre, but all quiet in the rest.

I was sad to hear of the fire which destroyed the original museum but the replacement of 'hi tech' nothing is a total waste of money. The outside displays of original things are wonderful and just what you go to a museum to see. The...More
