Kandos is the town that made the cement that made your town.

Established by the cement works in 1914, Kandos thrived as a modern 20th-century town in a spectacular rural setting. With the cement works closing in 2012, Kandos Museum has a vital role in preserving the town’s industrial and social history.

The museum is a community-run permanent home for a collection of stories, objects and photographs that bring this history to life. Kandos Museum is owned and operated by Kandos Museum Incorporated, a not-for-profit, New South Wales incorporated association.
