Come and enjoy an 'old time' experience for the whole family. Chinchilla Museum offers insight into the unusual - a fascinating glimpse into a district rich in cattle, grain, sheep and timber, and more recently melons, grapes, stone fruits and vegetables.

Chinchilla Museum has a fine collection, containing a non working replica of a 1910 steam sawmill, steam engines, ancient vehicles, period costumes and many historical relics. The buildings include Goombi Hall, the Emmerson Building, the authentic slab hut, Wongongera Cottage, a blacksmith shop and the old jail. Why not browse through the Kathleen Emmerson Memorial Library and discover some fascinating history.
