Other exhibits in the museum grounds include: social history building with displays of early Longreach history; Longreach Swimming Baths; Nogo Cottage (depicting family life in the west from 1935 to 1955); various displays of agriculture and road maintenance machinery; and a collection of commercial office equipment circa 1908 – 1950 from local business houses. The Museum forms an interesting experience for the whole family.
