The collection is well edited and presented. The dioramas are fun and informative. The information displayed contextualises and explains the relevance of the objects on display.

After a revamp the Clunes Museum is now known as The Warehouse. If you are visiting this picturesque town you should make the museum your first port of call. Spread over two levels in a heritage building dated to 1860, you will find many artefacts...More
