So much stuff!! Amazing amount of rail, hospital and immigration relics! They really have put together a great collection of interesting things, and the entry fee was more than affordable and reasonable.

A great place to spend a couple of hours. Lots to see and great static displays. Kids would love the hands on displays

There is a lot of material to view at this museum, though the displays aren't always viewer friendly. The volunteer staff were friendly and helpful.

This place was amazing! It is well thought out and very well looked after. Each different section was well defined and thoughtful. A must for anyone visiting Broken Hill, not just train enthusiasts. Bring cash - no eftpos.

An easy way to spend 2 hours reminiscing about how we use to travel around Australia. Wonderful exhibit you can walk around, climb on, touch and experience. So many great items on display. Well done to the organisers.
