We stumbled across this place whilst on a country drive, and we're so glad that we did. Whether you like trains or not, there is fun to be had at this museum. Not only did we learn a lot about Junee and it's rail history, we got to explore the inside of locomotives and carriages from decades past. The experience... More

There is so much history and you don't need to be a train buff to appreciate it. History explained by an enthusiastic volunteer. Well worth the visit but I don't think it opens until midday. May worth checking before you go.

If you traveled on trains as a child, and are into a nostalgia trip, then go and see the Junee Roundhouse museum. It's not flash, in fact, it has an air of decay about it, but then, for me this added to the charm. We were given the tour with an informed guide who was able to tell us about... More

What a great place, we had an impromptu guide to help us around and he was very friendly and knowledgable. If you are a railway buff the exhibits are great even though some are still a work in progress, i.e. a couple of the rail carriages are still in the middle of being repaired and renovated. Even though hearing about... More

I hadn't seen a rail roundhouse before and found it quite interesting. The old passenger carriage brought back many memories.

First visit - great friendly volunteers, helpful and informative, not over bearing - plenty of time to wander over the exhibits, and relive my early travel days (before diesel, non-reclining seats, chemical foot warmers) - real behind the scenes look at railways and travel of yesteryear

We were pleasantly surprised by this hidden treasure in junee. Not even really into trains but still found the history of the place amazing. It was great being able to get on the trains and walk through them. I love the mail train so fascinating. An amazing attraction considering it is run by volunteers. Keep up the great work!

Great place to visit and Geoff who showed us around was so interesting and passionate about trains and the history of trains. This was a well sent hour going through the history of trains. Don't forget to see the mail sorting train.
