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.

I volunteer at the Museum. The collection here is drawn from the Community and is a great venue to learn about local history. Kids are admitted free and adults are $5 each. Our volunteer guides are very approachable and knowledgeable. and we'd love too see you there at 1:30 to 4:00 on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

The Museum is staffed by volunteers and has exhibits of local history in both the Teacher’s cottage and the schoolhouse.
It’s very well maintained and is a very pleasant way to spend an hour within a short walk of the centre of town. Check opening hours before you go as it’s not open every day.

Stayed next door to Museum, went in Tuesday afternoon, only one there, nice couple of volunteers showed me around, nice memories of the area and well maintained small museum in 1873 school house. Recommended to spend an hour or so. Admission $5, kids free.

Only opened certain days but the two gentlemen who showed us around were very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. The amount of historic artefacts were impressive. Definitely worth the $5 entry fee.

A good overview of the history of Merimbula including the establishment of the school and the families which helped establish the area. $5 entrance fee which covered the museum area and the old school room which contained more interesting historical facts.

This museum is only small, but the volunteers provided a lot of additional information on the local history. It is right in the town centre, and deserves the support and the admission fee.

Admittedly, I didn't go in as I didn't have the $5 cash at the time. The large museum at Bega was entrance by donation, so I guess I have been spoilt. Whilst I understand the costs involved with purchasing items for museums and the upkeep, I couldn't honestly pay when only a few days prior I had visited a larger one for free.
Sorry

This was a very interesting place to visit for a half hour or more to see some history of the local area. Who knew this was a gold mining area? Lots of exhibits and things to read. Run by local volunteers, go and support them. They do a great job.
