Just so you know, the museum is open most Wednesdays to Sundays 11-3. We can ​open outside these hours but please check with us first. Please consult our ​homepage for current prices. We do not offer discounts for groups or seniors; we ​are an independently owned and operated volunteer organisation and fees cover ​our ever-increasing running costs. 😊

Acknowledgment of Country

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we have our collections and pay ​our respects to Indigenous Elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was ​and always will be, Aboriginal land.

We invite you to come and learn about the Wiradjuri, our local Aboriginal nation, through the collection and ​associated information. The Museum holds, as a keeping place, some significant Aboriginal items and we ​encourage you to learn and discover about this local nation.

The Wiradjuri nation is one of the largest Aboriginal areas in Australia and the largest in NSW. Wiradjuri is ​known as the people of the three rivers and spans an area between the Wambool (the Macquarie River), the ​Kalari (the Lachlan River) and the Murrumbidjeri (the Murrumbidgee River) rivers. Local history and artifacts ​reveal to us that the Wiradjuri lived and used the area, possibly supporting many family groups and local clans. ​The area was rich with good water sources including permanent creeks, springs, lagoons and swampy meadow ​areas in good seasons. We know the Boree tribe used the areas around Gaahna Bulla (Mt Canobolas) to the west ​and other tribes were located around Kings Plains, Guyong and Carcoar.
