I enjoyed this exhibition which gave a good picture of our female pioneers and their achievements in extreme conditions. What amazing role models they are for young girls of today. Even the ex-prison premises where the exhibition is homed, is an eye opener. Prison conditions for males and females, many Aboriginals. Some great characters spent time working there. Overall, this... More

This museum offers a great perspective on some of Alice Springs' different aspects. It highlights the achievements of some amazing Australian women while utilising the old Gaol as a setting. It is not a flash, 5 star facility - but these guys have done a great job with limited funds and awesome volunteers. Well worth a look. I spent 2... More

This story of women, both in the outback and across Australia was interesting and enjoyable. Some of the old artifacts and stories were good to see and read about.

Little has been done to the Old Alice Springs Jail since it was transformed into a museum and even less time spent on the outside area. Crumbling old cells are neither interesting or uplifting. The Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame is itself one small building containing mainly photos with text and not much else. There are far better museums and... More

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
