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.

A superb little museum run by volunteers, who are happy to answer your questions.
So many things to look at, including some history of Singleton.
Worth the visit even just for 3 special things- the Bell In The Tree, the Clockwork Jack for roasting meat over a flame, and the Ball Mechanism for money in a shop.
But really, there's a lot more as well, including hand made lace.
I'm recommending this to anyone, and the $5 entry fee is very fair.
Thank you to the volunteers for a superb job. 👍

This was an exceptional local museum - it was very large with some great carriages and sulkies out the back. It was set in a pleasant park with a fountain and lots of places to have a picnic lunch or a wrap bought from the local service station nearby. The attendants were very welcoming and informative.

The museum has limited opening hours as it is run by volunteers which are hard to find these days. But the collection is well worth the visit - it’s a very big collection for such a small town, and covered farming, home life, costumes, transport, Aboriginal artefacts, local history of settlement....and more. I especially liked the ‘over the top’ scrolls of thanks to local dignitaries - beautifully illuminated manuscripts. And the collection of Bowling Club pins - over 6000! And the volunteers were very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my visit and recommend it. And it only cost $3 and $1 for children. What a bargain.

Very friendly and helpful volunteers. I have visited Singleton historical society Museum several times over the years. I usually come here looking for local and family history information and never go away disappointed. There is always something new to learn and the museum has an extensive collection. The volunteers at the Museum are most welcoming and very knowledgeable. There is a good selection of local history books on sale here too.

Donated my grandmothers 130 year old dolls to the museum. Meet Peggy to hand the dolls over for their new forever home. There is some amazing antiques and historical items. I was in ore of all the museum contained. I was so impressed how much was inside this building, from tools, toys, farming machines & now some lovely old dolls. A must to visit and appreciate the past and this little towns amazing roots.

It looks really small from the outside, but once you enter there are so many rooms and a very large section at the back.

There is just so much stuff from many eras in time.

This place is really great for older people who want to go down memory lane, or young people to see how people used to live and how lucky we are now with all of our technology.

The staff there on the day were very friendly and took the time to show me a few things and explain the back story.

There is a very small fee but I found it was worth it.

Damn cold inside but well worth the $3 entry fee. Take your electronically bound kids to see what we oldies remember as 'phones' plus a huge array of what old old transport and machines look like such as buggy's, early washing machines & mangles and you may even find an ancestor or two? My cousin & I were on a 'family history' day out & had just visited the War Memorial next door in the park, so decided to pop-in for a look.
I just loved the 18th century wedding photo, then was amazed when I saw the actual dress on display!
I was definitely born in the wrong era.
