Description: The NED KELLY MUSEUM is part of KATE'S COTTAGE GIFTS SOUVENIRS MUSEUM...
The NED KELLY MUSEUM is part of KATE'S COTTAGE GIFTS SOUVENIRS MUSEUM & replica of the KELLY HOMESTEAD. Step through back of shop to the NED KELLY MUSEUM and an authentic replica of the Kelly Homestead... like the words of the song ... truly the "ramshackle hut" . Excellent historic coverage of the Kelly era. Rated 'The Best Ned Kelly Museum" by Getaway and featured on their show at least three times. Somehow this one business has two separate listing for TripAdvisor reviews. Would you kindly take the time to review both KATE'S COTTAGE and the NED KELLY MUSEUM ? Thanks to all travellers who took the time to review us.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We deliberately keep our Museum and Homestead entrance fees the same all of the year around rather than increase them during holiday seasons. This, then makes it affordable to all at $6.00 Adults and $1.00 for school kids up to 16 years. Our bus and group visits are $3.50... More

Dropped by as a rest stop on a long drive and found it really enjoyable. We probably spent about 30 mins in the museum, we didn't look in detail at all the information (two kids and detail, generally don't go together for me!!), but considering the kids were quite blasé about stopping there, they both loved it and have been...

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Its funny! Sometimes it is the kids who find the museum so interesting that the parents are sitting waiting and sometimes its the other way around. You can always make a return trip. Some visitors are in the museum for over an hour. When our kids were young I remember dragging them... More

To be honest I have never been that interested in Ned Kelly, and find some of his hardcore followers to be a little scary, but as we were in the area it felt like the right thing to do to pop into this little museum and check out what the story was all about. And I learned a lot. It... More

Thank you Vicki for taking the time to review us. Its funny! Some people spend 10 -15minutes and are in and out in no time and miss out on so much of the history.

We went here on our way to Melbourne. We all enjoyed it and didn't mind paying a minimal cost for family to have a look. Very interesting for the kids and the gift shop has a lot of stuff. We bought a newspaper type book of Ned kelly for around $7 - great for school projects.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is very valuable for us but even more so for the traveling tourist to see what is about. The book that you bought from the shop would be Ned Kelly in pictures. We have been selling it for nearly 30 years. It is great for children and adults. It stayed... More

Loved the collection of memorabilia here and the history. The house replica is amazing and I could have spent a fortune in the gift shop. Stopped on the way thru to Albury with friends, but I'd love to bring my kids to see Neds life!

Hi Thank you very much for your glowing reports. We have had a very busy holiday season with record numbers going through our museum and visiting the "ramshackle hut" ...as the song goes. Glenrowan is only 1/2 minutes drive off the Hume Freeway so makes for a convenient stop. Thanks again Chris, Rod, Lee & Diane of Kate's Cottage Gifts,... More

We haven't been through here for many years, so decided to stop in Glenrowan for a day, to do some reminiscing of the local sights and food. The Ned Kelly Museum is part of Kate's Cottage. It is worth the $6 P/P entry fee to see the replica of the Kelly homestead and the Ned Kelly museum display, which is... More
