So much of the history of the great town is presented. Very enjoyable. The chap who was there during our visit on 8 Mar was wonderful and helpful with some of my family history questions. It's also dirt cheap and great entertainment

Interesting rebirth of old railway building. I particularly loved the horse and his harness and the drawers and cupboards of interest in the first room.

This is a small but interesting museum that appears to be run on voluntary basis so entry is by donation . Well worth a look around to gather some of the towns heritage.

This place certainly lives up to it's reputation. Backing on to the golf course with great views across the fairways only enhances the relaxing time you have. Everything is just perfect, particularly if you have an extended stay. I just wish my stay was longer. You won't be disappointed.

The coin donation as with other volunteer maintained places is well worth seeing. Drift back in time as you learn about the Cootamundra area. The indigenous girls school period, qand so many other elements of the area is very well covered,

Down near Cootamundra Railway Station, this museum consists of a series of rooms devoted to different aspects of early life in Australia. Cootamundra was famous as a railway town and you see how the rail staff were accommodated and a lot of the artefacts related to the operation of the railway. Go and have a look at the restored and...
