Museum / Tour Booking Request Form
The museum is operated by volunteers and receives no direct government financial assistance so a donation to help with the Museum upkeep is gratefully accepted.
The history of the Camden district is as old as Australia itself and our unique heritage unfolds in the exhibited stories and displays as you wander through the large collection of Aboriginal and 20th century material which has been donated by the people of the town and district.
These things reflect the every day and familiar experiences that most of us share; joy and grief, recreation and work, caring and learning, past and present.
Come and enjoy and celebrate with us the stories of our district and its people.
A visit is essential for anyone interested in researching Camden local history, because the Museum is full of information which can be found in displays, filing cabinets and book shelves. On average more than one hundred visitors attend the Museum each week.
Historical Society members and volunteers are on hand to assist and we encourage people to look for themselves because you know what you are looking for. The Museum is run entirely by volunteers who do not have the resources to undertake research for you, but you are welcome to come to the Museum and use the files for your own research.
Group bookings are encouraged and the Museum can be opened at other times to suit.
