The Gloucester District Historical Society Inc operates the Gloucester Museum which is full of fascinating history and valuable artifacts from early European settlement times. The collection and preservation of photographic records, memorabilia and archival material dates back to 1826 when Gloucester and surrounding towns were named by the Australian Agricultural Company’s Agent Mr.Robert Dawson soon after his arrival.
Browse through the Pioneer’s Gallery, military memorabilia, aboriginal artefacts, gold mining hsitory, geological specimens, heritage domestic items and much more. We are noted for our informative tours around town for visiting coaches to the Museum which take approx 1 hour highlighting Gloucester’s history. Also a tour of a one-teacher school dating from 1907 can be arranged.
We have friendly staff on hand to assist in providing a most enjoyable experience down memory lane for a small entry fee. Located in a heritage building next to the police station, just up the hill from the main street shops.
