Description

Miles Historical Village and Museum is one of Australia's leading regional museums. It was officially opened in 1971, and over the years has developed into one of the premier tourism attractions within the region.

The Village was the vision of some very inspiring community members who's aim was to create a place where history could be preserved in a streetscape style and opened for one and all to enjoy. There are currently over 30 buildings with amazing collections and links to a bygone era. Some of these include- coach house, blacksmiths, general store, post office, bakery, union hotel, barbers, chemist, café, bank, hospital butcher.

... more

In addition to the streetscape shops there are significant collection displays including The Artesian Basin Centre, Norman Donpon Lapidary Display, War Museum, Mr G Morgan Shell House, Main Museum and more. Many of the collections are comprised of items generously donated by keen enthusiasts of the Miles Historical Village from all over Australia.

Come along and explore a slice of history in this unique setting!
