A lovely museum which has been renovated in the last couple of years. The displays of early times in the local area are outstanding giving you an insight to the fishing, oyster industry and early way of life in the Tuncurry Forster area. It has wonderful photos of the locals of early times. Family names which still live on today.... More

I love learning the history and seeing photo's of places, Tuncurry museum was an unexpected delight. Even my 13 year old enjoyed it. Staff have a great knowledge of the history of the area, it is small but worth a wonder through

A very authentic museum run by volunteers who love the local area and love history. Old buildings have been moved on site to increase the feeling of stepping back in time. The display is constantly being changed and improved. Book in to enjoy the barbecue facilities.
