  • The Temora Rural Museum is a snapshot of the best out of yesteryear. It covers nearly all facets of life from an earlier time - exhibits range from antique household goods, fine china and clothing through to 'hit-and-miss' stationary engines, tractors, farm implements, fire engines, and ambulances. There are also various workshops such as a blacksmith, a machine shop and a shearing shed. Large exhibits include Bradman's cottage, flour mill machinery, and a print shop. Other exhibits include a gold mine battery stamper and mineshaft cage. And don't forget the extensive rock and mineral collection. At $10 for an adult, its a bargain.
  • Awesome museum. So much to see. Give yourself at least a couple of hours to wander and reminisce. The history in this museum is amazing. Congratulations to all who have donated/lent items and to all the ladies and gentlemen who maintain this excellent museum.
