“Keep it, don't change it!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I love it because it is how a museum should be. No cavernous halls with rotating heartless displays that someone has cooked up with their idea of cultural significant, but real collectors' stuff, well-documented, leading to genuine knowledge. They are threatening to replace it with one of the new variety - it will be a great loss. Please preserve at least half of in an an annexe.

“Excellent place to spend a few hours”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

I really enjoyed this museum - there were so many different things to see and read. I especially enjoyed the room of stuffed animals - some of them were HUGE! There was also a Wildlife Photography exhibition when I went which was excellent. There appeared to be plenty for kids to do around the museum. I was recommending it to everyone in my hostel for the rest of my stay.

“Very interesting place.”

Well worth a visit. Always something different there when you go. Take the kids they will love it. Where else can you go that is free.

“Old and Tired...”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Awaiting the new building, this museum would be one of the worst in Australia...terrible condition really, with not much to see at all... I'd be embarrassed to show this to an international visitor.
