About
A hidden treasure trove of one of the most diverse collections of local history. Toys, military items, kitchenware, and locomotives from the now defunct Moreton Central Sugar Mill are among the many interesting exhibits for you to view. Special displays are also regularly rotating in addition to the wonderful permanent exhibits.

    Fastinating step back in Time.
    Last Saturday, we drove up from Brisbane to Nambour, were we visited the museum and absolutely loved the experience. Something for everyone to enjoy. Also took my young grandkids, 6 & 3 years. They loved the steam engines, plus the farming equipment and were fasinated by, in their words " all the old stuff". So much to see. The displays are very well presented, each in a themed room of this large historic house. Highly recommend a visit.

    A step back in time
    Thankfully this museum and others like it are keeping historical pieces for the younger generation to see how life was in earlier years. Many displays tugged at my heart strings, and brought back memories from my childhood. A special thankyou to the volunteers for keeping this museum functioning.

    Surprised so much could be on display. I love the more is more type presentation rather than select items on show.
    This museum is surprising. A lot to see. Favourite part of our experience was the interaction with the local volunteers and the official fluffy greeting dog. The enthusiasm was catching and who doesn't like to be greeted by a fur baby. Items on display have been thoughtfully presented, gathered into different rooms in the old school headmaster's house and restored and presented out the back undercover in the outdoor area. This museum is not only an historical representation of life in Nambour and surrounds, it is also a glimpse of Australian life. All schools in the area of this museum should schedule class outings to visit and see life from the past.

    Awesome regional museum
    I must say, this is the best country museum I have ever visited. The extensive well laid out and maintained site with fabulous restored exhibits are phenomenal. Located in the heart of Nambour, it is a great interactive family experience of history and engineering. A must while in Nambour located on the north-west fringes of the Sunshine Coast. Put aside at least 1 hour, you will need it.

So, much to see! It's amazing how many eclectic things can be squeezed into one place. It's almost like a Tardis. Check it out.

The perfect collection of local memorabilia. Immaculately preserved, for a few dollars a head you can be absorbed for hours. Trace relatives, friends or family. See the old school, hospital, mill, kitchen, house or just about any part of life.

One of the best regional museums we've visited. Set in Nambour's oldest building you will find a wide array of wonderfully diverse items reflecting the rich history of the area. Beautifully presented & with very welcoming & knowledgeable staff, & only a $5 entry fee. We will definitely return as one visit is not enough to take it all in. Highly recommended.
