Your first challenge here is to find the way in. It's not an obvious entrance off the street but via a back lane. It's just $5 each admission for adults. It has a natural history section covering the discovery of the Blue Mountains by the settlers. I was a little disappointed not to find out more about the indigenous population. They're was a mere token mention of the various tribes of Aborigines that originally lived in the area. There was an interesting area where you could listen first hand to a variety of people's thoughts and contributions to the exhibition via headphones and some interesting quotes on the wall, but these were hard to read due to poor lighting. They also had a visiting exhibition of portraits: photographic and painted/sketched. This was really interesting. They have a lookout point with views across the town and beyond, but I feel they missed a trick here, with no shaded seating area with an opportunity to sell us cold drinks or coffee.... They have a little cafe indoors though. Interesting and good value, but left a little disappointed.

Don’t judge a book by its cover. The cultural center is stunning, amazing and educational. It cost $5 for Adults and free for children under 16 years. They had two exhibitions - World War II and the Blue Mountains. Both were great however the Blue Mountains was far better as it was interactive. They have a beautiful local arts shop plus a divine coffee shop. Highly recommend.

We spent an entertaining couple of hours here on a cold wet day. The heritage display is informative but would benefit from larger displays utilising the large visuals projected onto the walls. Those scenes were amazing! Gallery was partially closed when we visited unfortunately and the exhibit we could view was interesting but somewhat repetitive . Gift shop was very good and offered a wide variety of well made local items and books- definitely worth a visit ! Cafe was quite busy and provided a good afternoon tea. A visit to the Centre would be a good way to end a day of sightseeing or when weather curtails outdoor activities .

We visited, not for the cultural aspects (though Herself noted the extensive library that forms part of the centre), but in search of coffee to sustain us until lunchtime. The coffee was strong - somewhat stronger than the average offering, which suits me fine but might not be universally welcomed. Herself pronounced her chai to be OK.
