A museum of national importance founded in 1993 by Molly Clark from Old Andado Station, the Women's Museum of Australia (WMOA) celebrates the achievements of women in Australia's history.

A pioneer woman is any woman who is a pioneer in her chosen field, referring not only to the traditional meaning of the word - a colonist, explorer or settler in a new land - but to any woman who is an innovator or developer of something new. Permanent exhibitions include, 'Ordinary Women/ Extraordinary Lives - Women First in Their Field'; the Signature Quilt; 'Women at the Heart'; and the Aviatrix Tapestry'. WMOA is located at the Old Alice Springs Gaol. The Gaol buildings are open to visitors and gaol stories are told in a complimentary booklet and exhibition, illustrating life in the gaol. Buildings are wheelchair accessible, (except the Clinic) and accessible facilities are located in the main Exhibition Hall. Visitors see two unique heritage attractions at one great location.
