The Women's Museum of Australia celebrates the achievements of women. It showcases the courage, determination, and perseverance of ordinary women who have achieved extraordinary things. It features pioneering women of Central Australia, Australian women first in their fields (politics, sport, science, the arts) and stories from new migrants. There are many exhibits, audiovisual presentations, a signature quilt with over 340 prominent women, an aviatrix tapestry, HerStory archive, and many related stories.
The Museum is located in the Old Alice Springs Gaol, and with the same entry ticket, visitors can walk through the old buildings and experience history by listening to reflections from those who worked in, visited, were inmates, or fought to save the heritage-listed buildings.
Individuals and groups are welcomed by well-informed friendly volunteers and staff. There are many educational outcomes for all. Most of the buildings are wheel-chair accessible and there are outdoor areas for relaxation. A well-stocked shop offers locally made and/or designed products.
Set in the Heritage Precinct of Alice Springs, the Museum is easily accessible from the town center and nearby attractions. There is plenty of parking for small and larger vehicles.
Spend an hour or two and be inspired.
