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.

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

So many positives: Being in a smaller country city (Junee) you will not have to deal with crowds. Very well priced. Authentic roundhouse, under cover. You can climb on to every engine and carriage. A small, working model railway. Lots of memorabilia and some of it not too far in the past. A little tricky to find so make sure... More

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.
