Nyngan is located on the banks of the Bogan River in Outback New South Wales. In 1990 the Bogan River flooded the township and much history was destroyed. The Museum was established by a wonderful group of locals wanting to collect local family history, relics and items of historical significance. Housed in the historic Railway Station, the Museum continues to grow beyond all expectations due to the dedicated group of volunteers whose passion is preserving local history to share with others.
The Nyngan Visitor Information Centre has opened in the old Waiting Room of the Nyngan Railway Station. Souvenirs, locally made products, maps and tourist information are available for purchase at the Visitor Information Centre. Visitors are also welcome to visit the Nyngan Museum as the new museum entrance is via the Visitor Information Centre.
