Chock Full of Interesting Exhibits
Nov. 2020
This is a most interesting place that can reveal many stories, not the least being the story of the White family the first white settlers in the area. A visitor could easily spend all day here.

After being repeatedly insulted by the man at the desk for being from Canberra, none of us were interested in what we saw in this little, crowded, poorly-signposted museum.
Skip Young and visit the MUCH friendlier Cootamundra—their museum is much bigger and better.

Don’t miss this wonderful museum while visiting Young. It is choc full of interesting displays and relics which are well organised and explained. There is a coffee shop on site and it makes a good coffee.

Interesting collection
Jan. 2020
Each town in this area has a historical museum full of donated artifacts showing past life in the town. The museum contains a large selection of household, commercial and agricultural items, furniture and articles of clothing. The stories of people who lived in Young are also told on panels, and there are exhibits and artifacts from gold mining and of course the Lambing Flats riots. The museum is manned by local volunteers from the local historical society. The collection of artifacts feels more like a warehouse of memorabilia more than curated collection. If you are in Young, worth visiting to learn about the history of settlement in the area and how people lived.

Learning about the area

I went to this quaint museum with a friend visiting Young NSW
It was fascinating learning about how Young a
Came to be Young and the story of the gold rush days.
The ladies at the entrance are very welcoming and friendly, full of information if you have questions. The displays of times gone by take you back in time. Lots of little details and stories in everything.

Like all country town museums. It was fun to show my young grandchildren what was used in the olden days . This museum had helpful staff and there was information about the Chinese gold rush riots. 1 senior and 1 child $6. Worth a look if your in Young

A rather jumbled collection of antique items
Nov. 2018 • Couples
This collection appears to lack professional curation. It is manned by some really old people. It could be excellent if the Council had it curated so that exhibits were arranged in appropriate categories that tell the story ofYoung locals. Worth a 1 hour or less visit.

A step back in time
Nov. 2018 • Couples
Great little museum full of old time memorabilia that will bring back many childhood memories for the oldies and amaze others of what was the norm for everyday living. Gives you an insight into the history of Young, the volunteers are a wealth of information and I enjoyed my time there more than I thought I would.

Informative and helpful volunteer staff
Sep. 2018 • Family
Well worth stopping here and checking it out.
Young has an amazing and unique history. A lot of items from the past and a short video to watch also.
The volunteer staff will point out items and the stories behind them. A ‘treasure hunt’ for my daughter to occupy her time and learn along the way.
There is a small entry fee. No eftpos facilities, so ensure you bring some cash. Open from 10am to 4pm (from memory).

Full of surprises

A delightful collection of everything from kitchenalia to mining tools. Very helpful and engaging volunteers. We would never have gone out of our way to find this lovely place if we hadn't spent the weekend there for a festival but it was well worth the visit. Lots of childhood memories reprised.
