Griffith Pioneer Park is a large open air Museum located in Griffith NSW and tells the proud story of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. This historic 40 building precinct is located on Scenic Hill and is a must-see on visiting Griffith. The Museum was established 50 years ago by volunteers who had the foresight and passion to capture some of the local history before it was forgotten or demolished. An extensive collection and resulting exhibitions are showcased in impressive spaces thoughtfully created to complement the collections. School and after-school groups are also catered for with special packages available that include lunch and hands-on participation. There is also a function room that can be hired for various corporate needs. After exploring the Museum it is just a short drive to Hermit's Cave and Lookout overlooking Griffith's lovely rural skyline....
