We took 2 hours to tour the site, including two demonstrations. If you are fans of American Pickers you will love this place.

Fun afternoon out reminiscing of the olden days in grandad’s house with a country town’s charm.
Educational for adults and kids alike and the animal hunt kept kids going for ages.
This attraction is bigger than expected with around 8000 exhibits so it is hard on the legs especially with older legs in the hot summer.
Opening hours could be less restricted too.

Hi Justin
Pleased you all had a good time. We are restricted in our opening hours by the number of volunteers available to man Reception. We would love to open every day from 9 'til 4.30 but the manpower we have does not permit this.

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to the museum. It looked small from the front but we where pleasantly surprised. It has many different buildings showing many different facets of history. The staff are very friendly and are happy to answer any questions. The whole experience was enjoyable. Many thanks Pete and Chris Robson

Friendly staff run the place - good to see how the settlers' created a place to live out of the bush. The buildings and artefacts there are interesting to see.
