This is only a small museum but has a good collection of artefacts and history of the area. The steam loco is good see being preserved. The volunteers are very helpful. Well worth the time to look at the display.

Locked up tight on a Sunday and not much could be seen from the car park. With Volunteers I understand that is is difficult to ensure people on deck/ on station but disappointing when not able to access.

Even if you are not a train buff, this is well worth a visit from a historical point of view and just a chance to meet some of the locals.

This is a cute little museum of the old rail station at Yass. There are some interesting objects which would be better presented if there was some labels of stories attached. Still worth a visit.
