A must see attraction in Tamworth, there are genuine artefacts. Be sure to allow a couple of hours, and is recommended you go early in the day before it gets too busy

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.

This is in the back of the Visitor Information Centre building which is shaped like a guitar. The ladies in the VIC were very helpful and knowledgeable on the area. The Museum follows the history of country music in Australia and has a lot of old pieces. Well worth the small fee to get in.
