The Museum in Baylis Street is different to many other museums as they have always new exhibitions which makes it interesting to call in frequently.

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.
