Landsborough Museum was established in 1976. It is one of the largest community museums in South East Queensland, and is dedicated to preserving the cultural heritage of the local region. A dedicated group of volunteers staff the Museum and work to research and provide visitor access to the community’s collections and stories. The Museum is usually open Wednesday to Friday and Sundays from 9.00am to 2.30pm.
A quick visit to the Museum can take up to one hour, but with so much to see several hours can be spent browsing items of domestic life in the last century, the local historic tobacco and farming communities, and many other items of interest from the one-legged shovel to the lightship light. Bring your camera and take as many photos as you like (no flash) as a lasting memory of your visit. There is a cost for entry into the Museum. For details, please view the Visit Us page.
Corrie Wright – one item in our latest exhibition
This sewing machine and converted bike form part of Corrie Wright’s project that investigates the significance of urban trees to towns and town dwellers and how the trees are linked to our wellbeing. This interaction installation, that can sew leaves, has been part of the Landsborough Museum’s Tree Change exhibition, launched in October 2021, however, it is on temporary loan and will soon be returned to its creator.
Tree Change continues to be the latest exhibition of the Landsborough and District Historical Society and can be viewed at the museum for some months to come.
