There is so much to explore at this museum and many of our visitors love what they have seen and learnt and have generously donated to the continued development of the museum.
As well as preserving local history and items of significance, we are planning to introduce an education program and to undertake vital campaigning work to protect the heritage of the district. We rely mostly on government grants which can be highly competitive which is why ongoing financial support is essential.
Your donation is therefore vital to help us with our work.
