The Museum and Grounds
Several local people, interested in preserving the history of the village formed the Taralga Historical society in 1972. This group approached the Uniting Church N.S.W. Synod, with which the Methodist Church had amalgamated and were able to obtain the old Methodist church as their headquarters. This church is now one of the buildings that is part of the Taralga Historical Museum managed by the Taralga Historical Society.
The museum is open Saturdays from 10am to 2pm and is staffed by volunteers. The entry fee is $5 per adult, children under 16 years are free. Enquiries from individuals, small and large groups, car clubs etc are welcome and the museum can be opened to meet their needs. Please submit your enquiry through contact page on our webpage.
