The Strathalbyn and District Museum and Heritage Centre is in the former police station (built 1858) and courthouse (added in 1867). Features include several rooms set out in the style of the Victorian era, a room reflecting changes in health care over the years, and a courtyard with very high stone walls. From the courtyard, one can access the three jail cells. Displays in the recently refurbished courtroom focus upon the lives of the original inhabitants and upon the settlers who first came to the district. A recently added highlight is the spectacular Home and Away display, featuring stories and artefacts from World Wars I and II.

The back yard is a treasure trove of stories and artifacts from the district's rich agricultural, commercial and industrial past. The agricultural history of the district is featured in a recent major display & is well worth viewing.

Opening hours: Saturdays and Sundays 1.30pm - 4.00pm. Closed after 19/12/21. Re-opens 08/01/22
