Bruce Rock Museum and Machinery Museum

From a cabinet of curiosity to a museum.

The old bank has been given a new lease on life, with the Bruce Rock Museum located within its walls. Some of the rooms have been refurbished with items from the early to mid 1900s to tell the history of the bank manager's premises. The museum site contains a rebuilt cottage with the traditional hessian and lime rendered interior walls, a saddlery and workshop, and school. The Bruce Rock Machinery Museum is located directly across the road from the Museum.
