Griffith Pioneer Park Museum

Pioneer Park Museum is on open-air museum set on 11 hectares of natural bush land. With more than 40 original and recreated buildings in the collection, the village gives a great impression of life in the early pioneering days. Cottages, a school, hospital, stables, store, church and Dumosa Inn are well worth exploring. The people of the area were very inventive and their are many inventions in the collection which made life in the early 1900s that little bit easier, such as the carrot washer and mechanical rice harvester.
While at Pioneer Park be sure to also learn the history of the early Italian migrant in the Italian Museum and the creation of the irrigation system in 1912 by visiting the Wine and Water Exhibition and learning about the early winemaking pioneers.

The Italian Museum houses an incredible collection of artifacts from the earliest Italian settlers, from machinery to kitchenware and beautiful handmade garments.

The Park is also the home of the Knitted Garden, a wonderful display of knitted and crochet delights donated by the Natty Knitters.
