Excellent visit to Berrima District Museum
Dec. 2019 • Couples
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.

A local gem

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.

A quick journey through time

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.

An unexpected history
Mar. 2019 • Couples
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.

A Butcher, A Baker, A Bunch of Makers - a must see new show for 2019
Feb. 2019 • Friends
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!

Quaint little museum off the main drag. The volunteer was very welcoming and patient. I really enjoyed learning about the German internees of Berrima.
