  • Clean and well kept facilities are much better than the average van park Worth staying at when you are in the area leaves the show grounds for dead May see you there some time dmck
  • The Temora Rural Museum is a snapshot of the best out of yesteryear. It covers nearly all facets of life from an earlier time - exhibits range from antique household goods, fine china and clothing through to 'hit-and-miss' stationary engines, tractors, farm implements, fire engines, and ambulances. There are also various workshops such as a blacksmith, a machine shop and a shearing shed. Large exhibits include Bradman's cottage, flour mill machinery, and a print shop. Other exhibits include a gold mine battery stamper and mineshaft cage. And don't forget the extensive rock and mineral collection. At $10 for an adult, its a bargain.
  • Awesome museum. So much to see. Give yourself at least a couple of hours to wander and reminisce. The history in this museum is amazing. Congratulations to all who have donated/lent items and to all the ladies and gentlemen who maintain this excellent museum.
  • A well presented and informative display. It is a credit to all involved.
  • Excellent museum. Probably the best rural museum i have ever been in. 5 Stars
