  • Visited this little museum accompanied by my two Grandsons, ages 13 and 15. We had the place to ourselves, apart from two helpers who delighted the boys by demonstrating some of the old machines...  more »
  • Great museum. A must see if visiting Bowraville. Lots on display. My favorite was the static steam engine.  more »

  • This would have to be one of the best regional museums I have been to. Situated on the main street, the museum is spread over several buildings. Each grouping is based around a themed area. For example there is a room devoted to a turn of last century bedroom. There is an old barbers shop. A mock up of a laundry, a school room. Each area then has a heap of items relating to that theme. Moving out of the main building you go into a covered courtyard which has stacks of garage, pub and agricultural exhibits. For me the highlight is the push button connection whereby you press a button and the machine comes to life showing you how it would have worked. Beyond the courtyard is an old original Church which is full of religious memorabilia. Do not go here expecting a quick walk through. I stayed for an hour and could easily have stayed for much longer.
  • Really good experience! So many artefacts from a variety of time periods! There's something for everyone with everything from clothing to machinery. I was particularly interested in how the advertising and packaging of products has changed over time!
