This was a bit strange and really not worth the effort. The museum is split between two locations a long way apart. Neither is very big and neither have much there. There were a few interesting displays but not enough to bother going. It's a...More

Excellent Museum in an interesting location. We attended a talk on the Tichbourne Trials as well as viewing the exhibits in the Museum both were worthwhile. The talk on the Tichbourne trial was well presented and interesting. We will be visiting again

There is no charge to look through the museum we made a donation as it was really interesting with a lot to look at both inside and out. It opens from 10am anf closes at 4pm.

Interesting, educational and entertaining for our family. Decent space dedicated to a historical identity issue in the late last century? We could not relate to. There was a small collection of door knobs and locks! The children's area had some good dress-ups and enviro-friendly deco....More

The museum is a good place to visit. There are also a couple of other museum in the area which you might like to see, such as the Botanic Gardens Site and the RAAF Base Wagga Heritage Centre. Hope you have a good trip.
