The Captain’s Cottage Museum captures the history of Murray Bridge and its surrounding area.
This treasure house offers an extensive collection of historic engines and farm machinery, model boat, train and toy exhibits, and an amazing photographic collection – all from a bygone era.
The Captain’s Cottage, built by Captain Adam Johnstone in 1890 for his wife and their nine children, lets you experience life as it was at the turn of the century.
You can visit year round and explore all things Murray Bridge, with displays depicting the development of the town and telling the stories of pioneering life from the dairy industry – with a full model dairy, through to the magic of the paddle steamers and the advent of rail transport.
After your tour, enjoy a quiet family picnic in the gazebo or on the lawns surrounded by beautiful cottage gardens and relics of years gone by.
