This is a belated museum to unsung heroes who have contributed so much to Australia. There's also a great exhibition on the Matron of this formerly prison building. A most progressive women, decades ahead of her time. BTW, I'm a man!

Very interesting stories of so many women who pioneered in many different fields. Also enjoyed the stories of the old prison, where the museum is housed.

What an interesting place to visit. Not only could we explore the old Gaol, but the display in the Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame was brilliant, but we did not have time to read all the material there. So much to see and fabulous presentation of the women and their stories.

I have always been interested in hearing stories about our pioneer women and all that they endured in settling this vast country of ours. I was especially delighted to see the aboriginal women acknowledged in all that they did too.

We visited this fantastic museum as one of the tours from The Ghan Journey. I was amazed at the wonderful way this was set up. The displays were excellent and interesting. Stories of great Australian Women were inspiring. Exhibits have been sourced from far and wide. The enthusiasm of the volunteer guides and staff is tribute to the great addition... More

Liked the displays showing the heritage utensils etc.. A lot to wade through in reading matter - a bit too busy and took ages to read so much! Liked the short videos and loved being able to sit and view them!

While we find most visitors enjoy the text we are also very aware of moving forward with modern technology. We are working towards raising enough funds to have a couple of... More

Two for the price of one. A great display and stories about the pioneering Women of Australia from the earliest days up to the present day. Secondly the whole thing is in the old jail, that only closed in 1993. Well worth a visit.

Our Museum is 1 of only 2 women's museums in Australia and we are the leading women's museum of Australia. We are also as you say, situated within the old heritage listed Gaol complex which in itself has... More

The National Pioneer Women museum in Alice Springs is just excellent. It is all about these strong and powerful women in Australia who made a special journey and put their name on the map of courageous people worth knowing about. The museum was founded by Molly Clark in 1993 and it is one of three women’s museums in Australia. Here... More
