Sadly we must now announce that the railway museum is closed to the public until further notice and will remain closed until further advice is available. It will not reopen until assurance has been obtained from Government agencies - hopefully later in 2020.

The Semaphore Railway has been closed from running for the remainder of the season. It will not restart until assurance has been obtained from Government agencies - possibly late 2020.

NRM volunteers are not to attend the museum until further notice.

As soon as we have more information, we will keep all informed.

Thank you again during these troubled times.







General Meeting Friday 27 March - CANCELLED

SA History Festival - Behind Closed Doors : Sat & Sun 16/17 May - CANCELLED.

As a consequence of the History Trust of SA cancelling the History Festival events for May 2020, NRM has aligned itself with that outcome and therefore our own Behind Closed Doors event is now also cancelled.

For those few people who may have already booked and paid for their Driver's Experience, please contact the museum if you desire a refund - or if you would like it to be retained as a donation.

NRM will continue to update other events planned during 2020.

Thank you.
