Awesome family attraction

A great attraction with willing, friendly volunteers. The array of railway memorabilia was amazing, the locks and carriages had access so that you could see all in and around them.

This place is well worth a visit. You can get in, walk around, touch and feel train carriages and locos from throughout the last century. There were 1st class and sleeper carriages and a TPO carriage - so interesting even if you're not into trains like me.

Dropped in for a look at the museum and roundhouse. The museum displays are great, and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. We spent a while looking through the carriages and engines in the roundhouse - fascinating. We were very lucky to see a steam locomotive on the turntable layer in the evening.

Great to have a working roundhouse as part of a musem - very unique! The local enthusiasts have stewardship over half the roundhouse which is on the NSW Heritage list. Half of the bays service locos for the goods rail network and half has historical locos and carraiges...a local treasure and a "must-see" for any train enthusiasts!

Going inside the old trains was awesome. I really gained an understanding of how our trains have changed and developed over time. A very interactive museum in this way, kids would enjoy it! We saw how the train roundabout works as well. Definitely worth a visit.

Great roundhouse with lots of different rolling stock and locomotives. You are able to walk inside most of them too! Be warned its very dusty. Take eye refresh drops and a puffer if needed.

For years, as I travelled on Melbourne-Sydney trains, I saw the Junee Roundhouse as we passed by. It didn’t take long on the Internet to find out that it was still an operating roundhouse, and that it had a museum attached. Railway buff that I am, I instantly put it on my bucket list. It’s taken me years to get... More

the guys loved visiting the museum and were fascinated with the operation of it all. Good for young and old, and a unique attraction not only for Junee, but for Australia. It needs to be promoted as historical evidence of our country's past.

I was pleasantly surprised with this museum. The museum member on duty on Sunday was highly knowledgeable about the roundhouse's history and all the museum exhibits. We were able to climb and enter all of the engines and carriages on show as well as looking at the large amount of railway memorabilia. This is definitely as must for families, with... More
