Over the years, the museum has collected memorabilia, equipment and even buildings. This has allowed the museum to expand its collection from its initial location to the now more expansive two locations conveniently located in town.

The Hamilton Pastoral Museum also hosts events throughout the year including the Harvest/Open Weekend in January where you can view machinery and equipment in action, Another Rally is held in the third weekend in May each year and is a major fundraiser for the museum with working displays, demonstrations and open access to the historic buildings.
