Bathurst Rail Museum
Sun 24 January 2021, at 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 9:00 am on day 24 of the month, repeating indefinitely
Explore the stories of local people connected to the Railways, past and present, who have contributed to making Bathurst the thriving city and community it is today.
The museum is housed in the historic Railway Institute building. Built in stages from 1909, it was the place to be for rail employees and their families to enjoy social gatherings, celebrations, and gain access to important vocational education courses. A fitting home for the Bathurst Rail Museum, the building has been extended to house the museum and a model railway the size of a tennis court. This scale model of the Main West railway during the 1950s and 1960s, displays the Tarana to Bathurst line and is complete with operating trains.
Young children are encouraged to come and explore creative play with one of the world’s largest permanent Brio sets, in our dedicated Kids Central Space.
Entry to the museum is the same as other museums run by Bathurst Regional Council.
Adult $15, Concession $10, Children $7 (School Age) and Family $35.
Open 7 days per week during NSW school holidays.
The Museum is closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
