Arms of Australia Inn, Emu Plains (and Studies in Australian History – Week Nineteen)

23 January, 2014

We recently had a little outing to the Arms of Australia Inn at Emu Plains (and snuck a bit of Australian History into there too).

The historic Inn has been turned into a museum and is managed by the Nepean Historical Society. It’s a small museum – good for an hour or two – but there is plenty to see and many objects that can be interacted with.

We got to try on leg irons and even held a cannon ball that was once attached to the leg irons. We could sit at old school desks and write on little chalk boards for our work.

We played a pianola, a piano organ and a piano.

We even got to ride on some old toys!



The volunteer guide we had was helpful, patient and kind.

The Arms of Australia Inn Museum is open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am-2pm and the first and third Sundays from 1-4pm. Adults $5, concession $3 and children $2. The Museum is found on the corner of Gardenia Ave and Great Western Highway, Emu Plains.
