Suggested duration: < 1 hour
8 Baker Street, Windsor, New South Wales 2756, Australia
Enjoyed the Windsor Heritage Walk (self guided) and visited the museum as part of this. Great information about the area and loads of brochures on other interesting things to do. I was surprised at the variety of items they have to explore. The Museum is...More
Free entry at the Information Centre with a small, but excellent display of various items.
Seeing the flood prone history of Windsor was quite eye opening!
A definite worthwhile stop whilst in the area.

As one of Australia's earliest settlements, there is so much history here but it is not obvious to the first time visitor. This will help a lot to anyone get some perspective, only small but worth spending some time.
This is a small museum but free of charge and well worth a visit if you are in Windsor. It has some interesting artifacts and both my partner and myself had a great walk down memory lane. The staff were extremely helpful and obliging.

Free entry (A donation can be made) and very engaging...More

Delighted to make a return visit to Hawkesbury Regional Museum. Displays of many different aspects of local history well set out in the impressive modern building. Easy to access, and free entry make it very attractive to visit.
