This is a must, from George to Elvis the Vickie. What an amazing collection of memorabilia, this museum is a credit to George. Get directions from the tourist bureau not the GPS. Highly recommend this museum and make sure you have a good couple hours.

This place was fantastic to visit! Extremely welcoming and something for everyone to look at. The owner was great to talk to and was interesting to learn a bit more about how it became a museum and playing with his bird with the kids.

Chrystie’s Museum is a somewhat personal collection and the owner has great knowledge of all sorts of things. Bit out of Tocumwal and cheap admission, worth a look.

Look it’s not everyone’s thing but if you like a walk down memory lane and vintage cars and caravans and other collectables it’ll keep you occupied for awhile. My kids were pretty interested in all the things for about an hour and a half. You...More
