We were disappointed 12 months ago when we visited to find the place closed due to water damage from recent bad weather.As rail fans we appreciated the displays and bemoaned the fact that so many lines are being closed in favour of trucks!

Staying in Tamworth for the Country Music Festival, decided to explore further afield. Found the museum very very interesting and it is definitely worth a visit. Staff very interesting, knowledgeable and friendly and the building itself is worth a visit not to mention the contents of the building

We were driving north from Melbourne in April 2015 and were passing through Werris Creek when we caught a glimpse of an interesting railway building which made us turn round. Gosh were we pleased we did! This operational railway station has the most amazing museum, it is extensive and will have grown since we visited as parts of the buildings... More

My husband had heard of this museum and seeing we were near it wanted to stop. The people there were very helpful and took the time to look up things and explain others. There are so many things to look at that it really requires a bit of time to do it justice. Even if you're not into trains like... More

If you're a railway buff, this is a definite must see. If you're not (and I'm not) but you have any sort of interest in history, it is still a very interesting stop and definitely worth a visit. The monument park and memorial wall include some great sculptures and have been very tastefully put together. Open 24/7 The old (still... More

We were driving through town and noticed the sign. Never even knew this place existed. The exhibits are fascination and the sculptures and memorial outside are just so uniquely done. The volunteers on hand really know their stuff, and we got to speak with one of the guys that put it together at the start. What a story of how... More

I love this place! So much history and a great old building. The modern sculptures outside are a wonderful contrast. The volunteers are just adorable! Ready for a good old chat, they are full of knowledge and all seem to have some attachment to the railway. They are in the process of refurbishing the first floor and this should be... More

I unfortunately passed by the station when it was closed for the day. I would have loved to see more than the exterior. I did get a lot of pictures while I was there though. I have been to Tamworth three times and this time I was DETERMINED that I was going to get pictures of the station - great... More
