Please Note: Temporary Alterations to Footpaths
The pedestrian path to / from West Footscray Station is subject to variation due to construction works. At present (Sept 2013) you have to walk from the "old" station and past the "new station" before you can reach the path to the Museum.
The new station is due to be opened in October 2013, then it will be much easier. Buses will replace trains early October.
See Regional Rail Link for more details.
Postal, telephone, email addresses :: further down the page.

Take a SUNBURY (or SYDENHAM) TRAIN from any city station to West Footscray: travel time 12 min, walk 5 to 7 min.
