Even though we are not big country music fans this museum was very interesting. A must do in Tamworth. The old videos and photos of performers were the highlight. Displays of old recording equipment and costumes made the visit very worthwhile. Note they only accept cash.

My mother and I did a tv ad commercial for walk a country mile about 10 years ago with ace modelling agency, the shots were taken in the gallery with the motorcycle and throughout gallery walkway. The Staff were very accomodating to making us feel at home and made my job a lot easier :) born and raises in Tamworth... More

A little disappointed in this display seeing Tamworth IS the country music capital of Australia. Tex Morton fans will probably find it interesting as there is considerable memorabilia on display relating to his country music career. Personally I was surprised there was very little on Australian artists including the iconic Slim Dusty. Venue is located near Hungary Jacks on Peel... More

This exhibition is really well displayed, especially with all the cabinet displays, lighting and audio. We enjoyed the old footage of entertainers through to the current era of musicians. The volunteers here do a marvellous job.

I'm no country music fan but really enjoyed the museum. I wish we'd had more time. This museum is run by volunteers and deserves a visit. My only complaint is that it was hard to find. It could benefit from some more directional signage.

A must see attraction in Tamworth, there are genuine artefacts. Be sure to allow a couple of hours, and is recommended you go early in the day before it gets too busy

This was an unexpected gem. Great display of county music artists and excellent videos presented in chronological order along the displays
