My husband loves anything to do with history and loved this place. Great if you are interested in all facets of history of townships.

“Surprisingly engaging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

An eclectic mix of artefacts which focus on local history. Given that this is entirely staffed and run by a small group of volunteers this is well worth a couple of hours while you are in Stanthorpe.

“Great diversity.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Not just a typical museum. Had many interesting displays and many things we had never seen. We loved the old houses set up to showcase a particular era and the tribute to the Italian settlers of the area. The old schoolroom was fascinating. It all was.

“magic place lovely people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

this museum is rightly called the 'best small museum in Qld' you can spend hours amongst the ten carefully maintained buildings learning so much because everything is carefully labelled and presented. Not to be missed.
