The Museum of the Riverina provides a regular program of travelling exhibitions with a diversity of themes throughout the year. It's one of two museum sites in Wagga Wagga, the other being at the Botanic Gardens Heritage site three kilometres from the city. Both are operated by the City Council.

This site was originally built in 1881 as the City’s Town Hall and Municipal Offices Council Chambers, as well as the seat of Local Government until 1999 when it was converted into the Museum of the Riverina. It has a wonderful wooden arch ceiling and a dignified atmosphere.

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.
