Due to our museum duty volunteers being in the high risk category for Covid 19, we have decided to take a 'wait and see' approach on re-opening the museum to the public at this stage. We will monitor the infection rates for Victoria in the next few weeks and will re-assess the situation then. Once we do open, visitors and duty volunteers will be required to use the hand sanitiser provided upon entering, and to write their names and contact in a special visitors'/volunteers' register. Numbers inside the museum will be limited and you may be asked to wait in the corridor until someone inside the museum leaves. The touch screen, photo albums and typed copy of Georgianna McHaffie's diary will not be available again for some time. Museum detective sheets for children are laminated and will be wiped with sanitiser wipes after each use.
Thank you for your appreciation of the situation. There is still plenty to see and do in the museum once we do open! In the meantime, there is lots of historical Phillip Island information on this website, and thousands of images from our collection online at victoriancollections.org.au
