The museum is very simple but is a quite pleasant visit. There are so many old objects very maintained giving a great understated from that time. Should take 1-2 hours to see everything.

Easy to find (especially after being to the lookout) and a small entrance fee. The museum is well presented and lots of information about the gaol and surrounding history. Walk across the road to the stable blocks and with some equine equipment and accessories on...More

The Gaol museum at Toodyay is an excellent way to explore what life was like 160 years ago. The displays are good but it was the excellent enthusiastic staff who made our visit such a tremendous day. Definitely worth a visit for a small cost...More

Worth taking a look and understanding Toodyay history $5 fee for entry or $12 for a family . Lots to look at , I enjoyed the court house , you can take a photo being a criminal and a policeman, the kids will love it.

Took an overseas visitor to learn a little of our past. Where this is situated gives people an insight into past and present living conditions. A small facility which has displays that I found interesting especially the insight from local indigenous people.

The amount of local information blew me away. I wasn't prepared for the professional way it's all been set out either. Fantastic local knowledge.

I was with my 8 year old Grandson and we both had an interesting visit. We were looking at the wonderful displays and enjoying everything for about an hour or so. He loved that this was our history.

Realistically it's just an old jail but before I even pay a small entry fee (($3.00) for an adult) the lady gave us already all the information and history of the surroundings. It's not just the jail but there is many old items to see...More
