A little gem of the West near Orange that enables you to take a step back in time. Not just with this great museum which is a tribute to the working land and it's people but to the country itself and the associated inventions as well. The museum is well located in this historic township which is worth a stroll... More

The 1st place we came to when we drove into Millthorpe from Orange. Don't miss it! and show your children! Lovely touches like local sculptures made from farm parts. There is something for everyone as you wander around the pavilions and displays. You can also buy something made by local crafts people. A big surprise is the Australian invention display... More

It was a cold wet Saturday when we visited with other family members. We were made welcome by the people looking after the place. My grandparents farmed at Millthorpe and there are photographs of my family. Worth a visit

This is a truly amazing museum. So much time has been spent collating and documenting everything, from photos to farm machinery. The museum is special as it has working machinery on display, with touch button technology. As stated here in other comments it is a great credit to the volunteers who are friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend.

The is not your usual museum, it is the best collection of items from the last 100 years or so of Australian country life, including Australian inventions, farm equipment, carriages, furniture, clothing and so much more. A must see when in Millthorpe.
