The volunteers are great and it's a great way to show the kids how we used to live and the train was always my favourite thing at the museum as a kid

At only 10 dollars a visit for concessions well worth a visit. 19 old buildings and ancillary equipment give a great insight into the history or the area. Well preserved and with numerous information sources , very helpful visitor centre adjoins plus ample toilet facilities....More

Looking to keep the kids entertained for the morning. Both were free (under 6). $7 entry for adults. Had a good selection of local history (settler onward). Self walking tour so able to wander at your own pace. Would recommend for those with younger children!
