“Interesting and fun - even for non rail enthusiasts!”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Seeing how the roundhouse system worked as well as the hands-on experience of various engines and carriages was magic. The of history, romance and fun of the railway days was brought out by Keith and Wayne with their different personalities, levels of knowledge, and senses of humour. They are also a mine of local information. This was an 'oh if you have to' tour for me, but instead became one of the highlights of my trip to Junee.

Great value, great people and a great cause to show and repair part of out history. I left on a high, ruing the day that Australia started going away from our love-affair with rail! Thanks guys - you couldn't get rid of me, but I still wished I could have stayed longer!!

“Run Down”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

The volunteer staff were very helpful but they are working with little funds and the place is deteriorating. Needs Council to put in some funds and support.

“Interesting but wear older clothes”
Reviewed November 12, 2008

This Museum is a snapshot of what the NSW Government Railways, as they were then known, were.

The roundhouse is historic and large.

Many of the exhibits are interesting, such as an operable steam crane (railway type) and a 44 class diesel locomotive dating from the 1950s.

In places, the museum can have oil or grease on its floor so be careful when walking around.

There is also a display of photographs and railway memorabilia.

It is walkable from Junee's historic town centre and railway station, but in the heat walking could be oppressive for prospective older visitors. Take a hat and sunscreen if visiting in summer.
