Echuca Historical Society Musuem.
Jan 2021
We called by the museum to get some information on past relatives lived in Echuca, & to find out exactly where the graves are in Echuca cemetery. On a previous visit 3 years ago the lovely lady in the office said to call back on our next visit & they would help . I also found out that some of the exhibits are changed on a regular basis so there will always be something different to see. There is also have some great books on sale. well worth the entrance fee.

Great place to visit
Jan 2021
I am a bit biased as my great grandfather was an early pioneer, operating a business in Echuca. The volunteers were most helpful and listened to bits of my family history, as I know it and showing us items such as newspaper cuttings that informed me more about my family's time in Echuca. There was a variety of items on display, from varying times from 1860's to 1960's.

Modest facade - lots to experience inside
Jan 2020
A great little museum documenting the history of this important river port. The experience continues outside with exhibits in the courtyard of what was once the local Police Station

The local museum. Quite interesting, and doesn't take too long to explore. Interesting exhibits outside as well. Worth checking out, and not too expensive to go inside either.

Nothing missed
Oct 2019
Cute museum and historical society in an old police station. Lots to see and learn, and if you need help with some family history the staff are wonderful. One of the volunteer women helped me for twenty minutes and she found the missing information I was looking for. She printed a few things for me and answered my questions perfectly.

Picturing the Past
Jul 2019 • Couples
A highlight was an exhibit about pioneering women, many of them widowed, who managed to look after themselves and children, sometimes running businesses. Another was viewing the old police holding cell for men, no amenities, hard to imagine it held more than one or two at a time. Lots of photos, exhibits, implements and a friendly conversation with the volunteer on duty. Recommend for a glimpse into the olden days of a river port.
