Located in the old rail works the museum now takes pride of place. Any unusual collection of objects. Wasp hives, shipwreck items, convict items, planetarium, trains, trams. Wander around at your leisure. Plenty of parking. Nice grounds. Electric restored tram rides available. Was close to Peppers Silos Hotel so we visited the museum and enjoyed it.
