Every Week

Oberon and District Museum
Oberon has a long history and some of it has been collected in the museum at the corner of Lowes Mount Road and Scotia Avenue. As well as artifacts and photographs from Oberon’s past, the museum has a 3D model of what the town looked like in the 1930s. Of particular interest is the recently opened Forest and Timber display which tells the story of the local timber industry. The museum is open every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 10.30am to 12.30pm and admission is $5 or $12 for a family.
Military museum
The Oberon Military Museum is open every Wednesday and Friday from 12:30 to 4pm and on Saturdays and public holidays from 10am to 4pm. The museum is located behind the RSL Sub-Branch building across the road in Dudley Street from the RSL. You can see memorabilia from WW 1 to Vietnam.
Oberon Men's Shed
A neutral safe space to enjoy other local blokes' company, with a range of activities. It's a great starting point for blokes new to Oberon to meet locals or for locals to catch up with old mates. There's even a very nutritious lunch at minimum cost.
Meetings are on Tuesdays from 9:30am at the shed in the Oberon Showground.
