Collection photos: M Oakey


The collection runs from 20th century heavy industrial machinery through to personal memorabilia … from massive industrial equipment to intimate journal sketches …

The idea of creating a museum for Kandos evolved from a temporary ‘Memorabilia and Art Display’ held at the Kandos RSL in 1985.

The display inspired members of the community to find a permanent home for a collection of stories, objects and photographs that would preserve Kandos local history for future generations. Some of these founding members are still involved with the museum today.
