Arms of Australia Inn Museum
Situated in the Penrith Valley and administered by the Nepean District Historical Society at Emu Plains, NSW, the Arms of Australia Inn Museum is situated at the gateway to the Blue Mountains National Park.
The inn was once a staging post for travellers making the trip from Sydney over the Blue Mountains to Bathurst and the goldfields.
Due to its colourful history, the inn provides an interesting venue for local activities, tourism and special events such as school tours and exhibitions. It is also a popular wedding venue.
Built in two sections, the first in 1826, it is one of the oldest buildings in Penrith, if not the oldest.
The museum contains thousands of photos and artefacts that were either used or manufactured in the local area.
The Nepean District Historical Society meets at the inn on the 4th Saturday of each month at 1pm and includes a guest speaker.
The inn is also the home of the NSW Corps of Marines who recreate the lives and times of the First Fleet. Marines, sailors, convicts, gentlemen of quality and their ladies.
