The museum displays are rotated and updated regularly, and focus on the performers and their stories, including little known aspects of their private lives. Each exhibit tells a unique story.
Including many stage outfits, musical instruments including a Glockenspeil, handmade leather and bush works from Gordon Parsons and Rodney Walkers one man band festival ensemble.
The museum’s collection is an amalgamation of those originally established by Tamworth-based volunteers groups the Heritage Hall (HH) and the Australian Country Music Foundation Inc. (ACMF) in the early 1990s.
Today, the museum’s collection is owned and managed by Tamworth Regional Council, who work with the ACMF Inc. to ensure the collection is cared for, digitised and available in various forms to the public.
