Everything...great history and fun. Staff were informative, hands on attraction. We spend quite a long time looking and enjoying all the attractions from the Diesel engine to old steam train. Young or old would find this lovely museum worth a visit.

Certainly worth visiting for a $6.00 entry fee for adults. It is run by volunteers who are trying to keep this place alive. You can actually sit in the drivers seat of the locomotives or go on the old carriages as a passenger back in time.

Well worth a visit to the Junee Roundhouse, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere when built around the 1940's, and still in operation today. We had a very knowledgeable young man show us around giving a running commentary on everything we saw.

Very informative for those who want to learn a little about the Railway Heritage of Junee, based at the Roundhouse there are many exhibits to peruse. An added bonus more than half the roundhouse is an operating facility which can be observed from the Heritage area and has the only operating turntable between Melbourne and Sydney.

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
