We were a bit surprised when we first saw the sign because it looked like a goal, but that's exactly what it is. Set up in the old Alice springs goal, it was wonderfully presented and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

This exhibition is in the old Alice Springs Gaol, which is interesting in itself. The exhibition is quite well done and features pioneering women from past and present. Can also recommend the souvenir shop - well priced indigenous artwork and souvenirs by people in Alice Springs correctional facility.

I assumed (always a mistake) that the National Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame would highlight the achievements of the early pioneers who made their way to the Red Centre. The Museum features Australian female pioneers who ventured into all areas of life - these include politics, sports, medicine etc. I found the exhibits to be a little too static, however... More

The pioneer women's hall of fame in Alice Springs is a credit to Molly Clark and her committee of enthusiastic supporters. To house the hall of fame within the walls of the old Alice Springs Gaol was a wonderful idea as it preserves history. The displays were very well done with a lot of information. It was interesting to read... More

At first I was disappointed as I could only see a jail but I returned and found the pioneer women's display in the decommissioned jail's kitchen. The museum is run by community volunteers who do a good job, has dated display methods but covers a wide range of pictures meeting women's history eg wives of farmers, health and childbirth in...

A very interesting aspect and information of women in history in Australia. Lots and lots of reading but all very enlightening. The old jail is worth a wander , a bit creepy but it's an old old jail. Might be a bit boring for kids but adults would find some interesting info here.

An interesting exhibition. The layout is a bit confusing. The gaol is interesting. It is run by volunteers and they helpful. 2-3 hours is long enough.

This attraction far surpassed our expectations! We spent 2 hours there. The first part about the history of the womens jail was fascinating - the women were so lucky to have such a humane and supportive warden as Telka Williams. The display about the Pioneer Women was packed with interesting information - we spent ages in here reading - even... More
