Alison Homestead is the oldest established, continuous rural homestead in the Wyong District. The homestead, set on 2 hectares in a rural setting occupies Wyong's first land grant.

In December 2011 the original and beautiful heritage-homestead building housing the museum was destroyed by fire. 

Although the homestead building has not yet been rebuilt, the Flower Packing Shed houses a collection of articles and artifacts, Barker's Barn is full of farming machinery and working tools and the Slab Hut School House remain centres of attraction for visitors. 

The Nursery is open Monday – Wednesday from 10am - 2pm and has an extensive range of plants for sale.

Reconstruction is well underway and its anticpated that the museum will reopen in mid 2015, with an official opening planned in October.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
