Derby Schoolhouse Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Step into the past and explore the vibrant mining and social history of the picturesque township of Derby in Tasmania’s North East. The Derby Schoolhouse Museum is a local history museum situated in the heritage school building, which was built in 1897. The Museum’s collection includes many photographs, documents and artefacts dating from the early days of European settlement in the region, with a focus on the mining era. There is also a replica school room which is furnished with desks and other items from the Derby State School, including exercise and copy books which belonged to students of the school, dating back over 100 years, a small but poignant display of World War I and World War II items, and much more. A good spot to take a break on your journey, talk to some local residents, and learn about the region.
