We spent about half-an-hour there and enjoyed the review of the development of this region from early 1800's. Many pictures and exhibits made it all the more interesting.

The Museum occupies a single floor only but going through the exhibits of historical artifices, photos and drawings etc seriously will take an hour - not a bad way to spend if you are on a day tour of Windsor. Don’t miss the 2 specimens...More

Free entry at the Information Centre with a small, but excellent display of various items. Seeing the flood prone history of Windsor was quite eye opening! A definite worthwhile stop whilst in the area.

This is a small museum but free of charge and well worth a visit if you are in Windsor. It has some interesting artifacts and both my partner and myself had a great walk down memory lane. The staff were extremely helpful and obliging.

It is both a very interesting walk down memory lane to see things that were in use during your childhood but also a great way to get some of the history of the Hawkesbury region. Free entry (A donation can be made) and very engaging...More

What a wonderful museum, staffed by volunteers, donation admittance. Learnt so much about the Hawkesbury I didn't know. At different times they spotlight something of importance that happened in the past i.e the big floods. So many interesting things on display and plenty of places...More
