The Coach House Gallery and Museum is owned by The Lions Club of Wedderburn Inc, who took over from The Museum Company in 2018.
The gallery and museum is run by volunteers and conduct tours of the museum. The gallery displays art and photographic exhibitions from the area’s local artists including Bendigo. It also displays locally made woodcarving, metalwork, jewellery and other arts and crafts. They offer a limited coffee shop that serves Devonshire Teas.
The General Store Museum dating back to the 1850s contains an early record of Wedderburn and the local district. The General Store closed in the late ’60s and has been preserved; it contains products from that era. There are cellars underneath and a coach house which has a Blacksmith forge, many carriages and equipment that were established for the museum.
The museum is now linked to the Wedderburn Historical Society with access to archival records of Korong Shire (now Loddon) including original settlers and businesses and general information of the area.
The Coach House Gallery and General Store Museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sundays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm or by appointment. Bookings are taken for group tours by arrangement.
