Housed in the old Border Brass Band Hall the Federation Museum showcases the History of Corowa Community and the surrounding district and has a comprehensive display of old machinery and household items. The story of Corowa's Role in the Australian Federation Movement is told with an excellent display of artifacts and news items including a Federation Timeline and the significance of the Corowa Conference of 1893. The Museum has a informative display outlining the local connection with Tom Robert's iconic painting "Shearing the Rams". Other notable displays are the sketches by aboriginal artist Tommy McRae and the Wilmot Pharmaceutical Collection.

This museum is worth a visit. Coronas place in the story of Australian Federation is well documented, and there is a lot of other material on display as well. The museum is a labour of love from the locals, worth a visit.
