We offer tours of the Courthouse 364 days a year.

Self-Guided Tours

Starting every 30 mins in the “Captain Starlight Theatrette” then proceeding at your own pace through the various rooms of the courthouse, viewing such things as “The Berrima Quilt” display. Photographs of the German internees and p.o.w’s off the German first world war ship the Emden including their many and various exploits in and around Berrima. A timeline, First fleet room, holding cell’s and finally our presentation "Treachery Treason & Murder" in the grand courtroom itself.

Guided Tours for Groups & Schools

Guided tours for groups need to be pre-arranged so that an escort guide is available on the day. Our guides are very knowledgeable with merry quips for an enjoyable tour. School Tours are also catered for, it proves to be an entertaining visit and we offer an information pack to re-inforce what the children learn on the day.


Berrima Courthouse Ghost Tours are conducted at the Courthouse with the APPI Ghost Hunts & Tours team. The tours start at 8.00pm and conclude at either midnight or 6am. Join APPI for a 4 hour or an all night tour, where they will take you through the historic courthouse, tell you some stories, and then they will search to see if they can make contact with any of the spirits who may still remain using their technical equipment plus some spiritual methods. This is a great night out - and even better, a great weekend away!

Fantastic museum; beautiful Georgian architecture, fascinating facts and extreme silliness ... finally the "spooky light show" at the end is a hoot, hardly terrifying but great fun and a good way to visualise a Georgian court.

I loved stepping back in time in the courthouse and learning about not only the courthouse history but history of the town and near by residents. A great day to be had, Lots of fun. I recommend this to everyone of all ages.

We liked the film on the history of the settlement of Berrima and the surrounding district, the listing of the first fleet ships and who was on board each. Finally a court re-enactment is well worth the price of admission.

We liked the fact that the displays told us not just about the courthouse but about the whole town. The AV presentation was excellent. The museum displays are a little old fashioned it style but informative. The sound and light show in the courtroom is entertaining.
