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

This was a very interesting exhibition. For such a small little room in the old jail, they managed to put a lot of interesting information in the room. This is a great place to visit if you are in Alice Springs and need something to do.

This is a wonderful display in tribute to the Pioneer women of Australia - well set out & very informative and you need a good hour or two to read it all properly, a must do in Alice Springs.

The museum is located in the old Alice Springs Goal and is situated very near the Royal Flying Doctors and the Reptile Centre. The centre is open to 5pm. They sell a lot of craft that are made by the prisoners in the current goal and some of their paintings are exquisite. The old gaol is a very open area.... More

The stories told of dedicated people who gave their all in the past to those less fortunate is one which should be heard by many

A great example of the power of volunteers and those who have a passion they are prepared to push hard for. The gentleman volunteer who greeted me was excellent and gave me a very informative introduction to the place. It is a combo of the Woman's Hall of Fame and the old jail. The Hall of Fame is simple but... More

Very informative highlighting the achievements of so many women and also paying credit to some of the everyday heroines who pioneered settlement in this remote area. the best thing though was a display which told the story of Bertha Strehlow and especially the wonderful poetry that accompanied it; unfortunately it was in a separate building of the old women's prison...

It's remarkable to have such a display of the women in Australia who have done and achieved so much. It was very interesting to read the history of these women which takes quite a while. Definitely worth a visit

What an amazing collection of stories of women in Australia who were the first in their field to achieve a milestone. There were panels for each category which were very informative. Definitely allow yourself a couple of hours to appreciate what has gone into making this collection a truly great one. The old female gaol was also extremely interesting with... More
