Morpeth Museum Reviews
nice friendly people proud of their village its a town full of history from the orignal arnotts buicuit factory to the old fasioned morpeth bridge over the river to the old style hotels and shops more »
This place has some interesting heritage stuff to see and is worth a look. You would probably only spend half hour here more »
Great little piece of local history that is run by volunteers. It is well worth a visit if you love history or live in or near morpeth. The place includes hundreds of old artefacts and countless stories about the town. It contains the main courthouse area with pieces of history such as technological equipment, old sewing equipment, courthouse antiques. The rooms off to the sides feature a room containing items from morpeth railway, a room of religious artefacts, a room of children's toys, a room of a household from that era e.g. kitchen items, and much more. You get a brochure and a nice short history of the town explained upon entrance and it's only a $2 entry fee. This place has more antiques and artefacts than 3 museums combined and the items in there are very, very old but in great condition. It's well worth a visit!
This is a must do place when visiting Morpeth. So many interesting things! The kids loved and so did my Nana! Well worth the gold coin donation!
