Journey into the past....

Our Story

Established in 1962, located in the Old Times Bakery and Produce Store, the Gulgong Pioneers Museum is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive displays of early Australiana in regional NSW. In historic Gulgong, everything of interest is in walking distance of the centre of town.

Why visit our museum?

The hundreds of displays include something for everyone. Tools, utensils, vehicles, equipment, period clothing, old toys, documents, Aboriginal history, natural artefacts, early photos and buildings dating from the heyday of Gulgong's gold rush era of the 1870's.

You'll need to allow plenty of time ...

For your visit as our museum takes up more than an acre and you'll easily spend the best part of a day exploring your interests. We also have a nice little shop selling souvenirs and memorabilia to help you remember your visit.


Like everything in today's world it costs to keep our museum operating to the high standards we set. Our pricing structure is as inexpensive as we can make it and still maintain our exhibits as we'd like.
