  • It is so nice to preserve the past history. Drop $4 per person in collection container, pick up leaflet and keep going around. They do take your imagination a few decades back. It is not just the gaol but there is this towns history here. If I could imagine some of my own ancestors are from this town, all on a sudden it makes sense and becomes invaluable. Not comparable with Port Arthur or Dubbo. This has a slightly different feel to it
  • Was about 45 degrees but we wanted to have a look. Plenty of interesting things to see and read about. No guide there so you just use the honesty box and wander round. It's a big collection including cars, trucks and machinery.
  • Nice history to this place. Used for different purposes over time. Place is well maintained.
  • Best place to see antique which helped the city to thrive in the past.
  • A lot of history reasonably accessible but all behind wire since this doesn't have helpers around. Honesty box for $4 donation
