Can do in 30 mins or 90 mins. Great history of the POWs in Hay. The railway station is one of the old big everything ones. Pity it's not also open. Thanks to the guys who set the museum up.

I enjoyed learning about the POW in Hay, loved the idea of housing the displays in old train carriages. $4:00 donation in an honesty box. I hope everyone is honest.

This facility is well worth visiting. Apart from showcasing the beautifully restored Hay railway station, the history here is fascinating. Every Australian (and anybody else in fact) should be aware of this part of our history. It is both informative and, at times, very moving.

A most interesting & fascinating history of war time POW's held in Hay, NSW. Display featured in 2 old railway carriages. Hay railway station a beautiful building. A bit of maintenance required in & out of the carriages. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting to read about the war time situation here. The council perhaps could supply more funds to conserve and display historic material as the railway carriages are not ideal for preservation.

Sort in two old railway carriages, on the heritage listed railway station. Inside the carriages there are very old photos and stories of the days when Hay was home to POW camps.

Located at the beautiful railway station the museum is displayed in retired train carriages. Lots of history is displayed about the local POW camps and the Dunera Boys. Great little local museum
