This museum has so much variety, from radiograms to farming implements. We spent about 2 hours wandering around in a relaxed fashion. I loved how parts of it were outside and other parts were in old buildings.

Very interesting collection of "old wares". Strange feelings to see so many articles which were used in our own early years

This is an amazing museum which my wife and I were taken aback by during our recent visit to the region. Entry is for a modest fee and well worth the money. If you have the time you could spend a day slowly wandering and marvelling at the array of exhibits on display. Once you pay your entry you are... More

Wow! There's so much stuff here. You can spend hours looking through the huge number of items on display. For oldies, you'll delight in finding so many things from your childhood and for the not so old, you may be surprised to learn how things were done way back when ( and sometimes, not so "way back ") A must...

It certainly lives up to its advertised “Established in 1962, the Gulgong Pioneers Museum is home to one of the finest collections of Australiana in the country.” It is run wholly by volunteers who have arranged all the objects in amazing collections (little rooms, tableaux) and have done a great job. Highly recommended for a visit.
