“The place was closed”

Junee Roundhouse Museum
Ranked #2 of 8 things to do in Junee
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

It's a pity that this museum was closed on a holiday weekend. While we appreciate that it's mostly run by volunteers, If you want to bring tourists into the town you have to sacrifice a little and make sure that the biggest attraction in town is actually open for people to come see. Otherwise, Junee was a waste of time.

This place was unexpected surprise. If you have any Thomas the Tank engine enthusiast in your family you must stop here. The largest working round house in Southern Hemisphere, very cheap family entry $16, and an amazing array of trains on display. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Enjoyed our tour through the Museum. Thanks Sandra and Harry for the time you both spent. Enjoyed crawling over and inspecting the old trains. Shame the other side (the maintenance part) wasn’t working at the time.

I’d been wanting to go to the Roundhouse Museum for awhile now and today I finally got the chance.
My daughter, Mum and myself were so excited to see the range of trains they had and spent hours climbing in and out checking them all out! So much fun especially for my 3 year old!
The best part though was the model train set they had in the main building. An absolute favourite and so much fun to press the button to start it and see the train go around!
Do yourself a favour and visit the museum well worth the $6 per adult entrance fee.

This is a great to place to stop and check out trains and engines close up. Some are restored and others are a work in progress
