For any die hard Mad Max fans this is a must! The collection is worth a look.
For those who remember it, it brings back memories, for the too young, something different away from a computer game.

The Ex-Englisman who runs it is a self- confessed Mad Max tragic who came to BH with his wife to follow his dream to build the museum. That is enough reason to visit. The displays are significant and bring the movie to life.

I drove to Silverton from Sydney just for this, and it was worth every kangaroo-carcass strewn kilometre! My brother and I are big Mad Max fans, particularly the second movie, which is the focus of Adrian's collection at the Mad Max 2 Museum in Silverton.

Silverton is a very interesting place anyway, as it's a ghost town with a mining history - very few buildings are left. Head straight for the Silverton Hotel (it has the 'Interceptor's Love Child' parked outside, contains memorabilia of the several films shot in the area, and serves cold XXXX of course), or do as we did and hit the museum straight away. There are various vehicles from the movie parked outside, as well as many more inside. Inside the museum there are many photographs, costumes props, as well as behind the scenes video footage, and plenty of other memorabilia. A fantastic collection. Talk to Adrian about locations and then go and visit them - the spectaucular Mundi Mundi lookout is well worth the short trip. Buy t-shirts or 'Dinki Di' stubby coolers!

Also worth a visit in the area is Silverton Gaol museum, The Living Desert Sculpture Symposium and Flora & Fauna Sanctuary, and Broken Hill itself is a lovely town with a surprising mixture of mining and art.

We even managed to find the location of a scene from the third movie in the Blue Mountains on the way back.

We were attracted to this museum as we are both fans of the Mad Max films so while in Broken Hill for a few days we decided to drive to Silverton (25 k. away) and visit the Mad Max Museum. For AUD$7.50 you get to see photos both from the film (Mad Max 2) and behind the scene photos. These were placed all over the walls in a rather small room which also housed some figures from the movie. Out back were various cars, buggies and bits and pieces salvaged from the movie. This part of the exhibit is open to the weather so so there was dust everywhere.
We were a bit disappointed in the museum but I guess, as this is a labour of love with no big bucks behind it, you get what the owner can provide.
It is worth going to Silverton for this though and there are other attractions there as well.
If you drive 3 k. further up the road to the Mundi Mundi lookout you get a pretty good idea of how deserted and lonely the outback readlly is. Nothing but salt bush, wind and a few eagles flying about. Perfect for filming Mad Max.

What a fantastic display. When you speak to the owner you will understand what it is to follow your dreams! An enthusiast with a lot of heart, his dedication to the cause is truly outstanding! I have been twice and there is always something new as artifacts and pieces are donated more often than the barrels are changed in the local pub! A genuine warm and friendly greeting meets you upon entrance, you could not ask for more. You will also not be able to find ANYONE on the planet with more knowledge, who is more committed and genuinely dedicated to the cause than Adrian (aka Adi). Once you have spent time inside, there is more outside...
Can't wait to visit? Then google ''mad max museum''-you will not be disappointed.
