Forbes & District Historical Museum

Museum in Forbes

This little museum houses an interesting collection of local artefacts, photographs and memorabilia, including a wide range of historic farm machinery and equipment. Its key exhibit explores the life of Ben Hall, one of Australia's most notorious bushrangers, whose life ended dramatically when he was betrayed and shot just outside Forbes. Hall is buried in the town’s cemetery; people still miss him, if the notes on his grave are anything to go by.
