Lady at the front was lovely, the museum has a huge collection of historical things, and getting more all the time. We were there during their Anzac exhibit, lots of interesting stuff. The jail cell out the back is interesting as well!

Very enjoyable museum with an eclectic mix of things to see. Period clothing, old timber machines, photos of the area including floods. Being in the old Police Station there is a cell as well.

Glad you enjoyed your visit...yes we would like to be able to afford EFTPOS facilities, but fees make it unviable.

This place was truly amazing. It's a photographer's paradise that's for sure. History abounds at every turn. We had the best time even though the place was absolutely packed!

Good amount of displays. Love the wedding gowns and the old materials preserved. The history of the place is also well presented. Good collections. Worth the visit.

We were given an extensive 1 1/2 hour tour by a very knowledgable retired river boat captain who shared his experiences and history of the Murray and Echuca. Very interesting museum with everything from wedding dresses to a jail!

Small but interesting display and helpful staff. Limited hours so check first. Housed in old police station just across from the old wharf. They do change their displays from time to time but the old police history is always there.

Thank you for visiting. Just qualifying our hours for readers, we are open daily (7 days per week) from 11am till 3pm, though if you need research it is best to phone ahead so a trained researcher is available for you.
