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.

Very interesting if you have an interest in the Shearing game. My husband thoroughly enjoyed himself, the teens not so much 🤣
Good value for a quick travel stop.

A little gem on the road. Volunteer was very interesting and loved Nyngan which made his stories all the more interesting.

The old local retired shearers and volunteers have put so much work into this museum. The history is thorough and there is even a bibliography on all the local shearers from days gone by. It may be small but packed with history and displays. The walls are even covered with artworks from a local artist. Well worth a visit. As a local and a woolclasser I could spend all day there but unless you have my shed passion you’d probably only want an hour or so.

Well worth a visit but don’t expect anything from the volunteers who are on duty. Terrific displays, photos and memorabilia but you have to work things out for yourself which is a shame as many visitors wouldn’t be familiar with the shearing game.

The Mid State Shearers Shed Museum is a fascinating display of equipment, photographs and memorabilia associated with sheep farming and shearing in Nyngan and surrounding areas.

Normal opening hours are 9am - 12pm Monday to Friday, or by appointment. I organised our visit for a Sunday afternoon. Not only did the owner Frank open the Museum specifically for us, he greeted us with a smile and took the time to show us through all of the amazing mementos that adorn the walls.

There is no charge for this attraction, however a gold coin donation is very much appreciated.

Definitely worth a visit when in Nyngan.
