Miles Historical Village Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Miles Historical Village 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 region’s premier tourism attractions.

The Village was the vision of some very inspiring community members whose aim was to create a place where history could be preserved and presented in a ‘streetscape’ style, as it was back in the day. There are more than 30 buildings housing amazing collections and bringing a bygone era to life. Some of these include a coach house, blacksmith, general store, post office, bakery, union hotel, barber, chemist, café, bank, hospital and a butcher shop.

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 from all over Australia.

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