Some very detailed stories of the hard life women had to endure. Interesting to read how they overcame challenges to become Doctors and other respected occupations in a man's world.

Australians in particular will spend more time here than planned as you read about the amazing feats and achievements .of these women, many of whom were pioneers in their fields. Established in the old gaol which in itself has stories to tell the display is interesting and well organised.

we really enjoyed the exhibitions here and a great video with people who had worked here. The womens hall of fame is absolutely full of history and really old photos and pieces of memorabilia all through it. We walked through the old buildings and enjoyed chatting to the people who really seem to love what they do, thank you !

We have wanted to visit for several years as we arranged for an Australian pioneer to be inducted. The opportunity presented itself as a side trip from The Ghan on the way to Darwin. Great museum that should be visited by all Australians to fully appreciate the impact so many fabulous women have had on our lives. I look forward... More

This is a fine museum honoring the contributions of women pioneers in the Australian outback. Very well presented in a small space. Price was reasonable. Near the Royal Flying Doctor Service and good to double up.

The Hall of Fame was located at another attraction (the old gaol) The Hall of Fame was very well presented with many photos and stories of the pioneering women who did so much for the Alice and its surrounds. Some very interesting stories. Could have spent a lot more time there.

This is a must for anyone - but i think especially for any women visiting Alice Springs. Such an inspirational experience - incredible stories and artefacts.I went an hour before closing - not enough time to enjoy it all. Its actually in the old Prison so you get to see two attractions for the price of one. The Prison is... More

One of our side tours whilst travelling on the Ghan from Darwin to Adelaide was a stopover in Alice Springs and the chance to visit some of the local historical sites. To hear the story of Molly Clarke and her continuing efforts to establish this National Pioneer Womens Hall of Fame after visiting the Stockmans Hall of Fame is a... More

We arrived close to the end of visiting hours; luckily the helpful person in charge let us in and we were able to visit the whole display. It was an eyeopener to realize how recent some of these pioneers' achievements were.

A great place to visit while you are in Alice Springs. Located across the road on the left, from the Royal Flying Doctors near the Reptile Centre. See some of the accomplishment of the women in the surrounding area, both European/Australian and Indigenous. Don't forget to ask about the quilt! A gold coin donation to keep this place going was...
