Visit here and discover the real history of Australian Country Music. Allow yourself at least an hour to view and read all the exhibits. The staff are lovely and very engaging and you will feel most welcome. Visit even if you are not really into Country Music. We learnt a lot.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hour or so we had at the museum and could easily have stayed twice as long if we had experienced and read everything there was to see. It was a journey through Australian country music and so well presented. If you like Aussie country music then just do it.

Plenty of parking for caravans. The flow of the exhibits worked really well. Unfortunately most of the audiovisual displays weren't working which detracted from the experience. The staff were friendly and helpful

Thoroughly enjoyed this place - super cheap entry and a collection that spans the history of country music in Australia. Beautifully arranged with loads of personal memorabilia, stage outfits, instruments and graphics. Loads of interesting short videos narrated by John Laws no less! I thought I would just go in for a quick browse but we were there for ages!... More

My other half has visited here before and loves it. I am less interested in country music, so really went for lunch with a couple of musician and so really only explored the cafe, reviewed elsewhere.

If you are a country music fan or even an Australian music history buff then you will find the ACMF is the place for you. The museum displays many artifects and outfits from our pioneering entertainers right up to the current stars and you can spend many hours looking through.

We thoroughly enjoyed this informative exhibition. It was well displayed in glass windows with audio where required and film clips of old and new artists. The museum is an added bonus and well run by a team of dedicated volunteers. Very enjoyable and a must do on your visit to Tamworth.

The static displays here are quite well set out but unless you are a country music fan you may not know many of them. Apparently they have an enormous amount of material that they cannot display due to the small area they have at the moment. The other displays that take you on a walk through a type of time... More
