About
Hawkesbury Regional Museum is located in one of our country's oldest settlements-the third on mainland Australia after Sydney and Parramatta. It is the only publicly-run , professionally staffed museum in the Hawkesbury and, indeed, in the wider area including the Blue Mountains, Penrith, Hills and Blacktown local government areas.

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.

Smaller than most town museums but it's free and I really liked the exhibits - seemed different to the photos on here so maybe I missed something or it's gotten crazier since then. It was the bits on serious history that made it - like John Tebbutt's multiple stellar observatories - and the weird stuff like the flabbits and the forgotten theme parks (although they focused on African Lion Safari, which was nowhere near here).

Cool little collection of local artifacts. Bit of interesting information about events and local people you'd otherwise know nothing about.

This professionally run museum does an excellent job of preserving and presenting the local area history. The exhibits are well curated with great information plaques. This place is a must see for kids to assist them in learning about our history.

A day out to visit Windsor after over 40 years and to find the Museum was the highlite of the day. Staff spent time to show us the basic layout of the exhibits and written information available. Be assured this is a very good Museum housed in a modern building and we will be back. to relax and spend more time. George H Cronulla

We came upon the museum by chance walking up from the river. This is a new complex that has been well-designed and has very interesting exhibits detailing the history of the Hawkesbury. It's a pity the museum is not featured in the brochures we read on the area. We worth a visit.

Although this has lots of interesting and well presented exhibits I would have liked to seen more about how the town grew from when only the natives lived here through to the what the early settlers did and onwards from then. A lot of that is shown here but is dotted around between the different sections rather than as a continuous timeline. That’s just a personal preference though and I was happy to while away an hour looking at what they did have on display. It’s very well done and is certainly not a musty, boring old museum!
