Arms of Australia Inn Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Nepean District Historical Society currently operates from the old Arms of Australia Inn which has been equipped as a museum of local history for the Nepean District.

The museum contains thousands of photos and artefacts that were either used or manufactured in the local area and these are on display for people to see.

Along with displays, there are also a number of hands-on interactive displays, including old gramophones, a pedal-powered organ, old sewing machines, old adding machines, a 1920s telephone switchboard and hand-cranked telephones. As well, there is agricultural equipment including the old grindstone and handwashing mangles, wood stoves, pre-electric refrigerators and blacksmiths forges and equipment.

They can provide morning or afternoon teas, as well as full Devonshire teas for an additional cost if you so desire.

Lantern Tours of the museum are available by appointment.
