Great little museum well laid out . Exhibits and displays very well explained lovely tribute to the ANZACS. Well worth a visit and the cost was very reasonable. Allow about a hour to go over everything on display.

Thanks very much for your kind review and positive response. Having the opportunity to tell some of the Museum's stories to our visitors is our biggest reward as Volunteers.

Such a great collection of artifacts & personal stories. The 6 year old loved the treasure hunt and we all learnt a great deal about Berrima and the surrounding area.
