Excellent Museum in an interesting location. We attended a talk on the Tichbourne Trials as well as viewing the exhibits in the Museum both were worthwhile. The talk on the Tichbourne trial was well presented and interesting. We will be visiting again

The museum is a good place to visit. There are also a couple of other museum in the area which you might like to see, such as the Botanic Gardens Site and the RAAF Base Wagga Heritage Centre. Hope you have a good trip.
