“Not great, but a nice slice of history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

The museum is housed in a replica of the original Alice Springs railway station. It's not overly large, but is a interesting repository of Ghan-iana. We found the remains of the old railway (and the telegraph line) that runs for 30km or so south from this museum through the desert equally interesting.

The museum has a good cafe attached and is a haven for birdlife in its outdoor water feature.

A good venue for a cheap lunch.
