Mount Victoria Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Mount Victoria Museum has sixteen rooms, large and small, housing an eclectic collection of artefacts from Australia and exotic shores beyond. From prehistoric times to early exploration, convict days to more recent times, the collection is multifaceted.

Early farming tools and dairy utensils, natural history, laundry and kitchenware, the local mining industry, early photographic equipment and musical instruments. Furniture and fashion are also on view, and The Railway Refreshment Room tableware is on display, as well as a schoolroom and clothing from the 19th century.

Don’t miss the technology room nor the Papua New Guinean dioramas. Dioramas and many amazing natural history items were bequeathed to the Society by Mel Ward (Charles Melbourne Ward), actor, naturalist and marine collector, 1903-1966. His Gallery of Natural History and Native Art was based in a long, narrow fibro building at the Hydro Majestic Hotel, Medlow Bath.

Local history publications and souvenirs are available for purchase. The grand 1868 sandstone railway station (still in use), in which the collection is housed, is in itself worth a visit as a reminder of the days of steam train travel.

There is something of interest for everyone.
