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...

I couldn't tell because I did not get into the facilities. We arrived at the front gates at 12:30 pm after having just visited the Flying Doctors only to find the front gate locked with the Welcome Sign still in front with the hours of operation posted and 12:30 was well within the hours of operation.

After visiting Anzac Hill we carried on to Women's Hall of Fame. The sign said they were open 10 to 5 and we were within that time - all the doors were locked, no one in sight although we could see a table with papers on it that looked like information folders. Waited around for 1/2 hour, and then left.... More

Good Morning Travelover 795943, so sorry to hear you were not able to come in and enjoy our Museum/Old Gaol. We were open between 10am-4pm as stated on our notice at the front of the building, however my volunteer did tell me that she had closed the big front wooden doors at 3.30pm leaving the small door set in the...

Went to the museum on our only day in Alice Springs and it was a lovely experience. The staff were super friendly and very helpful. The exhibits were well planned and thought out and it was interesting to learn about the experiences of early women settlers. Highly recommended.

Fascinating place to discover the history, strength, endurance and passion of some of these early women settlers. Sometimes these places can be a bit tedious but this one is done well and kept interesting.
