The Narrabri Historical Society runs the Narrabri Old Gaol Heritage Centre. After the gaol's closure the Narrabri Historical Society was invited to house their collection in the Old Gaol section, and the museum opened in 1988.
The Old Gaol is part of an impressive complex of colonial government buildings which also includes the Office of the Court of Petty Sessions and the Court House. The architect, James Barnet, also designed the Sydney General Post Office. The gaol opened in September 1882 and operated as such for exactly 100 years. It now provides an interesting insight to how things were in the past.
