This place is no doubt one of Tamworth's more establish exhibitions on country music, this awesome collection has moving footage, photographs, detailed stories about Tamworth's historical connection to the local country music and other write ups on all the leading stars. Worth a look no regrads

This was just a fabulous step back in time. My Aunty is actually featured in the Museum and it was so nice seeing her costumes and reading about things I wasn't around for!

This was an excellent display and very interesting to Country Music Fans (my husband) and those who are just interested in music and the history of Country Music in Australia (me). Thoroughly enjoyed this museum.

Found this very interesting and full of great information from the birth of country music in Australia to the present day. Everything is very well laid out and you can easily spend a few hours engrossed in all things country.

Attached to a small information center, at which I found the staff rather unhelpful and unknowledgeable, is the Walk A Country Mile Museum.
