SHOP features a huge range of interesting and exciting gift, Ned Kelly and Australiana souvenirs as well as very collectable Ned Kelly and bushranger second hand books. Step through back of the shop to the MUSEUM display and the replica of the KELLY HOMESTEAD... Like the words of the song " Ned Kelly lived in a ramshackle hut"

With a $9 entry fee this was a very worthwhile visit. A huge number of artefacts, photographs and information on Glenrowan, Ned Kelly and that era. Very good recreations of the Kelly house and armour. There are two chatty sulphur crested cockatoos.More
