  • This is a tractor enthusiasts paradise, whilst there is a good number of cars and other collections, the number and variety of tractors and other farm equipment is truly astounding. The staff are friendly and helpful. The display is located over several sheds, so on wet days you need to come prepared.
  • Nice beautiful collection of cars. Great efforts
  • Fantastic place with a number of vintage cars with the story behind them. Has many restored tractors and a lot of vintage/historic kitchen and farm equipment from around Geraldine. A number of 50s 60s 70s and 80s classic cars too. Very friendly local people running the museum who are happy to chat.
  • This wonderful museum is one of the best reasons for taking time to get off 1SH. Great value and owner Colin Sweetman so friendly and informative
  • Awesome with genuinely great people and history. Cheers
