“Very interesting & informative”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This place was well worth the visit, split into different segments starting with a short movie, the presentations were very good, we were a bit short on time & had to just breeze through a lot of the displays, would suggest a good half day is required to look at & absorb everything. The audio & visual displays are very good and there is a lot of it.
There is a cafe on site but we did not visit this so I can't comment. If you are in Bourke this is well worth the visit

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Definitely don't miss this attraction. $50 for family, maybe a little steep as <10yr olds don't grasp the history. Brand new facility - staff fantastic, cafe attached too
