Nambour Museum

I read in the local paper about my town have it's own historical museum, so of course I thought what better way to spend a Saturday arvo :P  To be honest I can get historical overloaded pretty quickly but this museum had the perfect amount of charm/info and for the price of 3 dollars who could complain!

I walked in and was greeted by a woman who handed me a map of the house, where the museum is laid out in.  I found myself alone for about 90% of my time there which let me completely indulge in taking photos, which the lady at the door said was fine to do :)

The first room I found myself in had a cabinet full of old cameras,  I knew straight away my three dollars had not gone to waste!

Then perhaps my favourite room of the house, full of wedding dresses and dainty vanity sets!

and then onto the Hospital Display, which was amazing, all the old medical instruments, a vintage wheelchair and of course I fell in love with this vintage nurse outfit!

The museum continues outside and this is where I ran into some other folk, to be honest it was just a few older men looking at the old machinery...I walked through that bit fast, but I walked out of the museum with a smile on my face...heck even their garden was pretty

Nambour, I love you even more now

  4. It was super impressive and a really cute detail was information sheets telling you about how 'The Great South East'(or a show similiar to that) came and did a feature and how they spent the most time in the wedding dress room and the kitchen and commented that it was the best collection of items they'd seen of a local museum!

    Very cute!
