Wymah was a pioneer settlement with a small thriving township in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It featured one of the earliest ferry river crossings which conveyed both people and livestock. Nothing remains of the township except the Victoria Pub (now Fairview), opposite the original ferry crossing and the school and school house. The original pioneer families still farm the area and their histories are highlighted in the museum's many displays.
The museum offers a selection of rotating local themes and includes pioneer family history and research facilities, the history of the Wymah Ferry, Wymah School History, the rise and decline of the Wymah township, and many more.
