Gloucester Museum is full of fascinating local history and valuable artefacts.

Accompanying the aboriginal artefacts and artwork are substantial collections dating from the 1826 European arrival.

You’ll find displays of military memorabilia; Australian domestic items; musical instruments; hotel artefacts from the kitchen & bar of the Barrington Hotel in the Copeland goldfields; A.A. Company documents; heritage gold field maps, clothing & uniforms; full-sized recreated scenes featuring a 1940s classroom from Upper Bowman school plus Copeland Gaol with gold mining artefacts; family archives, photographs, old cameras, telephone systems, antique furniture, geological specimens plus 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.
