Well presented machinery.Volunteers pleasant. Basic museum inside but interesting. Needs some more work to bring it up to a tourist class facility,doing there best with the funding.

If you ever want to talk to the current generation about rail coaches, this is the place to go to. $6 entry per person. This is the real thing - you climb real coaches - sit in first class seats of days gone by; go up the steam train locomotive up front. Do not expect this to come with today's... More

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
