Wow, what a lot to see. We spend over 4 hours looking around. There are many different well presented displays (many in old reconstructed buildings) including cars, tractors, cameras, clothing...

If you love Australian Pioneer History and a look at the past this is the place for you. It's Amazing! Be prepared for many hours of wandering through the 62 exhibits and even then you cannot take...

Must see! Our favourite museum in Australia so far. We spent over 3 hours here. It wasn't crowded because the tour buses don't come on Tuesdays. The staff were excellent! Extra friendly and accommodating. The tea room was very cute to sit in. There are plenty of picnic tables so I'd recommend bringing your own or having a snack in the tea room. Entry fee is CHEAP and 100% worth it (I don't know why other reviewers twisted about the price!) Yes it does smell old. Because it's full of old things. It's very much the Australian version of Beamish in England. We'd recommend this to anyone.
This has to be our favourite dog friendly activity so far on our lap of Australia! We loved the variety, informative signs and beautiful displays. Something for everyone! Dogs we’ve allowed throughout the grounds and inside each individual building so we didn’t miss out on anything which is quite rare when travelling with dogs.
We spent a day there,but if you don't see it all,they give you a complimentary 3 day pass .We brought our tickets on line before we went,costing $35 each. Very tidy,plenty of toilets. There is also a Cafe, where you can buy a light meals.Very educational and lots of photo opportunities. They have a few demonstrations, through the day.I don't think it is very wheelchair friendly, as there are lots of hills and steps to get in to the buildings.
This is the best museum I’ve been in Australia! So much to see and great for photos. We spent more than 3 hours and still not enough. It’s a 3 days tickets, will be back in a day to join some show and activities! Love it
The historic village in Herberton is remarkable. You purchase a ticket which you can use over a 3 day period. I was there from 10am to 5pm the first day and 3pm to 5pm the next. There is just so much to see and read about. They do close the entry from 3pm as they believe 2 hours is not enough time for viewing. They have live demonstrations of blacksmithing, wood turning, miniature steam engines, vintage cars running, vintage john deer tractors running. In each shop, pub,school,house, bank, post office, shed etc there are displays after displays of you name it and it will be there. A amazing collection. What really impressed me was the cleanliness of everything. The sheds even with the old machinery sitting around it wasn't covered in cobwebs or layers of dust. I highly recommend seeing this village.
