This is both a tribute to the women who have made and continue to make a valuable contribution to our country in a wide range of areas as well as the locals who have done the hard work to get the premises in the first and to curate such a fine exhibition. Its a great use of the former prison... More

This is well done, easy to access, and very educational. I would have liked to have seen a part allocated to Nurses, they are so integral when Drs are far away. I would recommend this to everybody.

Not much written in the men's block but lots of interesting info plagues to read in the women's block. The display had info on all areas of life and how women handled living in isolation from first settlement in Central... More

We found this to be a really interesting place to visit, combining the chance to look at the Old Gaol and historical collection about the Pioneer Women. This takes into account Pioneer Woman from all walks of life, not just "Frontiers people" - Doctors, Nurses, Lawyers, Farmers, Travellers and Sports people. There is loads of information and detail - verging... More

This museum, though fairly modest in terms of the building and collection, includes fascinating profiles of a truly extraordinary bunch of women who helped forge the outback across a range of disciplines and service areas. Definitely worth a visit.

We found the entrance fee rather expensive for the subject matter on display which is interesting but not comprehensive.

Went to an information session today. So many good initiatives being planned. Non profit organisation, as locals we should be getting behind this great vision that Molly Clark started. You can be a member anywhere in the country, just a small fee which includes admission. There are so many women's stories here from sporting achievements to early settlers. Life was... More

The great thing about this attraction is that it is a three for one, you get the Women Hall of Fame, the Prison and also any art installations that are there all for one price, so it is fabulous value. I really enjoyed the prison side of it, and the Women's side was really informative. Of course the weather was... More
