The National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame, Alice Springs
(4.3/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Pay homage to hundreds of trailblazing Australian women with a visit to The National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame. The site features several permanent exhibitions recognizing the special contributions women made in various fields, from working in prison kitchens to conquering new lands all over the continent. This museum is located in a former prison, which in itself is a unique tourist attraction. Behind the walls of the old prison you can explore stories of the brave exploits and incredible achievements of women from all over Australia. A number of displays celebrate the country’s famous outback heroines. Opened in 1993, the museum continues to expand its collection of stories, photographs, books, and audio/video recordings, providing a comprehensive and educational experience to visitors from around the world.
