Waltzing Matilda Centre

Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We were looking forward to visiting the new version of the Waltzing Matilda Centre after visiting the old one which burnt down 2 years ago. The new building is spectacular and the displays are good but we didn't feel it was as good as the old one. Of course a lot of valuable items were lost in the fire and as it had only been opened a few weeks, there may be plans to add more displays in the future. We're happy for the town that they have their Centre again and hope it goes well.

The new modern exhibition space which has only just opened in the last month after the original burnt down in 2015. It includes a main gallery which uses state of the art technology to tell the story of the land where Walting Matilda originated and of course, the history of the song. Also included in the Centre are an art space and a cafe and the new section opens out onto the original Qantilda Museum, or what remains of it. Our children will remember it as the tractors, trains and glass bottles section.

Staffed by informed and friendly people, this is a first class museum.

Newly opened centre. Lots of interesting information and donated old stuff. Needs a better way of presenting the history of the place, as I felt some information are missing and could be better presented.
Staff very pleasant, lots of parking in front of the building.

I ventured in to see the newly opened Waltzing Matilda Centre. The cost of entry is $30 per adult. You are given a set of headphones once you pay for your ticket and is explained that once inside the main exhibition the audio commentary will activate as you walk around the exhibitions. Well that might be what they want to happen, however that didn't happen. The headphones didn't work correctly, if they worked at all. It was not just my set, others in the exhibition were having the same problem. Everyone just took them off, this was very disappointing. The centre light glass display is very impressive and the lighting and sound is very relaxing in the exhibition hall. There is still some work going on in and around the centre to complete.
You need to fix your headphones.

Do not need much time to go through the museum. Interesting area out the back where there are old trains and living accommodation. Given headphones but they keep cutting out all the time.
