The museum spans a town block, consisting of multiple buildings filled with objects from the town's history. Not a cheap attraction. But the money is used to maintain the place.

It's been over 20 years since we were last here and it certainly has grown in size. The teenagers weren't keen at first and we insisted they went through it. We were greeted warmly at the desk and onto our adventure for a couple of...More

I've been going to this place since I was a kid. It's quite simply the best and most extensive place of its kind in Australia. There is absolutely no reason to go to Gulgong unless you visit it.

You are almost certain to find something of interest here. A large collection with huge variety which included fossils, horse drawn vehicles, steam engines, early office machines and much, much more.

Don't visit Gulgong without visiting this museum! Amazing collection of memorabilia. If you can't find something you remember as a kid at your grandparents place, you need to look a bit harder. Will definitely be back at some stage.

What an amazing place. So very much bigger than you think from the outside. It's huge. Step back in time and get lost in the amazing display of so many things. Every room tells a different story. Well worth the $10 entry. Enjoyed it all...More
