Up-To-Date Store Cultural and Learning Precinct - Coolamon

About

For generations travellers and the families of Coolamon were served by the Up-To-Date Store. It was generally known as the place were you could get anything from a needle to a hay stack. The Coolamon Shire Council has created a museum around a retail experience that no longer exists. It's a charming world of service.

A space of historical significance which includes a fully functioning Lamson Cash Railway Machine (the only known ball-style cash railway system in the world that is still in its original location), and the 'Mavis Furner Collection' and provides a space for travelling exhibitions, art shows and seminars.

Included in the museum experience is the collection of Garth Jones farm machinery. The collection highlights the intimate link the region and the Store had with the development of agriculture.
