The Cottage Museum is a simple 1890’s weatherboard home built for local blacksmith, James Nash. It contains the museum and office of Rylstone and District Historical Society. The museum displays domestic and rural life with items of costume, rustic furniture, kitchenalia, small farming tools, schooling, WWI & WWII, musical instruments, and photographs of pioneers, the town and district.

The Community Garden is open at all times for visiting. Rylstone and District Historical Society hosts lectures, workshops and exhibitions; organises excursions and heritage events; and continues to research local and family history drawing on the resources of the community as well as the Society’s archives and collection.
