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

I had very limited time but could have spent hours in this venue - the disused goal - another story! But amazing stories of courageous women in so many fields of endeavour - from the 1800 's and those pioneers, academics, pilots right up to those women who have paved their way in more recent years of political endeavours ....

I really enjoyed this exhibition. Such strong women in the early days of the Alice and then all the first women who had achieved in such things as medicine, the law, engineering, religion. Very interesting.

This Museum is a must do when in Alice Springs. Established in an attempt to address the omission that the Stockman's Hall of Fame has towards the role of pioneering women in Australia, it is absolutely brilliant. There is a lot of reading involved - but you can do as much as you like. Please note: my husband also found... More

This museum provided an insight into the amazing Australian women who were "firsts" in their fields. So much interesting reading. We were surprised at the setting of this museum - the old goal. An insight into the lives of those incarcerated in the early days.

This is two museums in one - the Old Gaol (i.e. Old Jail), which is mainly the Women's Gaol and a large building devoted to the Women's Hall of Fame. Almost next door to the Royal Flying Doctor Museum.

I liked the fact this museum is dedicated to show you the first women in important roles in the whole world, not just Australia. Pioneers in their field. So much history and the museum is situated in the old prison, which gives you a little insight on the old days of how prisoners were kept. So really you get to... More

The Women's Hall of Fame is housed in the Old Gaol and we could see the conditions in which prisoners were kept before we went into the main gallery - in the old Kitchen area. It's a comprehensive portrayal of the lives of many of Australia's pioneer women. Pictures, records, photos, artefacts and video presentations are used to inform and... More

I stumbled across the National Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame simply because I wanted to visit the Old Gaol, and that's where it's situated. It really added to my visit. I found the displays really fascinating and I enjoyed the documentary footage.
