Do you love Edwardian fashion or have an interest in the wool industry? At the Boorowa Museum there’s something for everyone.
The Boorowa Museum is housed in the old George Patterson Store, a pise building constructed in 1882. Since its construction, the building has been used for several enterprises including an undertaking business.
The Museum is home to a historic clothing collection including beautiful Edwardian gowns and accessories worn by the ladies of the Hume family, relatives of the explorer Hamilton Hume. The Museum is constantly changing displays. Currently displays include the Hume Costume Collection, Well known residents and what they have done, Windows on Wool, Railways Memorabilia, and Local Ambulance Memorabilia. A Print Room, including the original printing press from the Boorowa News newspaper, is also coming soon.
The Museum is conveniently located on the main street of town with easy access to shops and cafes and free parking! Take an easy stroll around town to see some of the other historic buildings on the Shamrock Trails.
