Hay Gaol MuseumLast updated Friday, 26 Nov 2010.
A diverse collection of artefacts showcasing the history of Hay is displayed in the buildings and grounds of the old Hay Gaol. The complex has had many uses since it was built in 1878: gaol, maternity hospital, lock hospital for the insane, prisoner of war detention centre, institute for girls and now a museum. Exhibits include a growing collection of antique windmills, beer pumps used in Hay’s hotels, a Chinese incense stone and Australia’s best preserved Aboriginal canoes.
