The Corrective services NSW Museum Cooma is a must see attraction when in Cooma!
Well organised tours with real educated inmates! Our tour guide was David who was full of information & knew everything about the museum!
Family really enjoyed our experience!
Thanx David 👍👍👍👍👍
We went here without planning to and what surprise. Kelvin our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spent nearly an hour with us showing us various displays including the gallows.
You can buy goods made by the inmates at reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.
Had such a great day learning about corrections through time. It was really cool that our guide kelvin was an inmate. He taught us heaps about inmates, that they all work & we loved all the handmade items made by the inmates. Definitely recommend.
Thank you for your question but I am a bit unsure. I think that there was a ramp into the back of the museum, it it would be best to get in touch with the Cooma Corrective Services Museum for a correct answer on that one.
