We love coming to the museum, whether it's solo or as a family, we always see something we missed the time before. Highlight is definetly the antique cars! My kids lived the train ride.

Not really into Elvis so the museum was probably wasted on my son and I but my son loved the car museum, it was only small and took about 15-20 minutes. Not sure it was worth the $15 to get in!

You have to be an Elvis, car, train and or vintage farm machinery enthusiast to enjoy this centre. Very interesting displays and we spent quite a while here.

Our family enjoyed walking around this lovely place. The ladies were very welcoming. Looking at the old cars and machinery was a treat.

Our group of 40 was welcomed warmly, and enjoyed the historical displays, the machinery, cars and a very wide-ranging display of Elvis artifacts. Moat Cottage, a replica of Sir Henry Parkes' birthplace in England, houses an informative film about his life. Well worth a visit!
