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.

Don’t be fooled by the exterior of the building that houses the Berrima District Museum, the museum itself is well worth the money and extremely interesting to visit.

My family and I recently visited over Christmas and spent a good hour or so wandering round the museum and reading all the signs of information. There is so much to see and read that you could easily spend half a day here. I was fascinated to read about the history, especially of the WWII German internees That were held prisoner here and admire the collection of items from days gone by. There was also another temporary art exhibition inside with works by Rembrandt which was wonderful to see with digital works and audio to listen to the stories.

It is very clean inside and cool during the summer which was a welcome relief to the heat outside. I would definitely visit again when I’m next in the area.

Well worth a visit to find out more about the history of the Southern Highlands.

The museum is run by volunteers who are proud of what they have been able to bring together. Lots of local knowledge and a few surprises.

Allow some time to see all of the exhibitions.

The museum gives a fascinating insight into the populace of Berrima including German detainees that build small places along the banks of the river.

Dropped in to have a look at this museum and it is worth a visit. Entry is $10.00 per head and is run by volunteers who maintain many artefacts as well as modern interactive presentations.

If you an hour or so to spend whilst in Berrima, why not drop by.

We came to Berrima to learn about early settlement and walked away with a new understanding on the treatment of Germans during WW1. The museum volunteers are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We learned the fascinating history of a large number of Germans interned in Berrima and how they made the best of a bad situation.

This wonderful digital exhibit celebrates the artisans in the Southern Highlands with entrancing photography on very large screens and audio stories as well as actual examples of art from those in the exhibition. I was fascinated by the very beautiful photography which captures the artisan and the process of their making. This exciting exhibition shows visitors the variety of talented people who live in the area and what they create. Truely a celebration of what is a creative life!
