Fantastic under-rated museum
Jun. 2021
Excellent museum for the whole family. Self-guided tour around the buildings. Take your time. Lots of interesting curios and stories.

Old school building and its classroom will be popular with kids.

Fascinating insights into the challenges and lives of the early settlers.

There is also a covered picnic table. Perfect for the day-out.

Bigger than I expected

Self guided tour around old buildings and historical items to view. At the back of the property is a bridge that takes you onto a bushwalk (sadly we didn't have time for but looks nice). Very interesting and has a quiz for the kids to do whilst wandering around.

Awesome place to visit. So much to do, walk through the museum exhibits, bush walk, suspension bridge and use of the undercover Gas BBQ/ picnic area are all included In admission price of $20 per family , $10 per adult, $5 per child. Great value With plenty of room for kids to run around. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Fascinating museum and lots of room for kids to roam. Easy walk to Hampden bridge and suspension bridge at the rear of museum. $20 family of four and great experience for children especially the old school house.

Lots of 'Wow' factors from the Pioneer past
Jan. 2020
This must have been one of the most fascinating places to witness early pioneer living. The historical building have all the earmarks of real homes of the early pioneers, decor, furniture and even the vibe. Brings back memories of when my nan used to talk about her younger years. A great educational place for kids to see how things were 'back then' and even brought a lot of raised eyebrows expressions to me. Located right next to the historical Hampden Bridge, this is definitely worth taking your visitors and guests for a day trip out to Kangaroo Valley. Check their trading hours, as some days vary.

Replica pioneer-era buildings with period artifacts
Nov. 2019
The Kangaroo Valley Pioneer Village Museum shows the lifestyle of early settlers to Australia. We discovered houses and tools from the middle of the 19th to early 20th century. You can explore old trades like a blacksmith, saddle maker etc.
It was dry and a bit run down. The people running the place ignored us when we first arrived and there was nobody at the reception to collect the $10 per adult. After we had looked in every building, taken photos and tried out the suspension bridge and barrel roll, we were eventually approached by someone to ask for payment. Overall, it was disappointing and I wouldn't recommend this Museum unless they improve it, including the Geology display.

interesting day out in a lovely area of NSW

The Museum is a bit scrappy - but gives a really interesting story of the family from the UK and how their family grew in the area.

We visited on the long weekend on the Sunday morning. We had a blast looking through all the displays and exploring! $10 per adult I feel we definitely got our money’s worth and spent 2-3 hours here.

Rip off and wasted money
Oct. 2019 • Friends
Went sunday long weekend and paid $10 for entry and expecting some education and good display but absolutely rip off place. It looks like someone's garage and put museum name on it. Only 4section of house which nothing much inside and don't waste money. I have seen so much better museum and settlers museum without ridiculous entry fee.
