“history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

A good look at local history, particularly the womens side of life. Is in the old Alice Springs gaol which has some very interesting history on it's own.

“Surprisingly very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We just stopped off here to pass the time in this horrible town but we really enjoyed our visit which was very informative. You just travel round at your own pace and we were engrossed for almost 2 hours. Good value.

“Not a 'must do', but interesting if you have the time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The main exhibition is a celebration of the achievements of Australian women, but for me the highlight was seeing round the old jail. Nothing much has been done to it, you can even see some pictures left on the noticeboards by the last prisoners. Even the toilet is the prison toilet inside one of the cells! It's definitely creepy...but in a good way. Worth the AUS$5 entry fee.

“Worth visiting, but get a guide.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

It was very informative and had collected a lot of history and other pieces about the women who toughed out Australia's and probably one of the world's harhest environments.
