This is a great little museum, with items from very early settler life, through the wars and just general life. This includes not only machinery, but also toys, clothes and static displays of early life and school.

As part of Moreton Bay Older and Bolder program visited this museum. Excellent presentation of history and how it was done way back then. Great venue to visit all sections and gratifying to see Men's Shed for the passionate male volunteers.
