Where & When To Find Us

Last updated on 07-Nov-20

OUR MUSEUM IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE BUILDING BEING DEMOLISHED FEB-MARCH 2021. WE WILL BE RE-LOCATING TO THE NEW COWES CULTURAL CENTRE DUE TO BE COMPLETED MID-2022.

We are very excited with the prospect of having a new museum where all the displays will be behind glass and available for the public to view at any time the adjacent library is open. It is planned that our volunteers will be available in the museum at set days/times to answer visitors' enquiries and interact with visitors generally. We will also have storage, cataloging and archiving space in the second storey of the museum space so can continue the work of making our collection available online through the freely-available website: victoriancollections.net.au  We already have over 2,000 images available to view there!

 

We are still happy to research your enquiry and accept donations, especially of photographs or digitised photographs and smaller objects. All donations must relate directly to Phillip Island. Conact the secretary, Pam Rothfield: history@waterfront.net.au
