Review of George Museum

George Museum
Ranked #12 of 40 things to do in George
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 April 2013

The museum could do with a sort of "pick-me-up". It is nice for the kiddies to see. The Prince Albert museum has a better lay-out. Our museum has large open spaces and small displays, making it feel sort of "empty".

Never mind the rest of the museum go there to see the Ruby Reeves paintings. Incredible detail on paintings painted with a magnifying glass!

The building was built as the Drostdy (residency) in 1812. During 1826, the building burnt down and was rebuilt as a private home in 1831. It became the Victoria Hotel in the late 19th century now houses the George Museum.

The museum has an outdoor complex with a display about the wood industry, but there is little information about what you see. Inside there is a collection of interesting music instruments. The Charles Sayers "Mini museum" in one room was very interesting but once again there is little information about the items on display.

The museum had no entry fee but they have a donation box. The museum is very neat and there are clean toilet facilities available. Overall it was a nice outing.
