Strathalbyn and District Heritage Centre is located in the former police station which was built in 1858 with courthouse added in 1867. Not only is the museum open to the public on a regular basis, it is also available for Bus Tours, Community and School Group bookings, plus historic research.
The Centre specialises in group tours, and can cater for up 40 at any one time. For group tours, there are demonstrations of farming and other skills from the past (such as a fully restored horseworks driving an old chaff cutter). Indoor activities include the close-up viewing of items that are not generally accessible to the public – such as beautiful hand-embroidered clothing from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
