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.

Saw steam engines, blacksmith, old toys, war memorabilia, old schoolhouse and historical items all kept in great condition. Mind blowing for today's tech kids.
