Great way to get your bearings (geographically, geologically, historically) when coming into the Tweed region.
Jul. 2020 • Family
Really lovely little museum. Well set out. It was good for kids. A little bit of everything (geological history, recent history, fossils, aboriginal history). Well presented for kids. A highlight was showing the kids how the volcano shaped the region with a big screen video which was really well done.

Informative and interesting
Nov. 2019
For a small museum it has some interesting information about the Tweed area. The exhibits are informative and well set out, if you can tackle the stairs out the front there is a lift to the second floor inside if needed.

Interesting museum and fun kids workshop
Oct. 2019 • Family
My six year old loved the sand art workshop inspired a local indigenous artist. We loved looking around the museum and learning about some local history. The staff and volunteers were really friendly and helpful. It was fun finding Gertie the mouse, too.

Small, but interesting museum
Jun. 2019 • Couples
In Murwillumbah for the day (staying at Kingscliff) after visiting the Growers' Market, we decided to visit the museum. The fascinating history of Murwillumbah is well laid out and makes it easy to imagine life there in earlier times. Helpful and enthusiastic staff were a bonus.

Thanks for the great review Sarah and we’re glad you popped in to see us at Tweed Regional Museum. Hopefully you enjoyed the thunder eggs as well, which date back more than 20 million years. Hope to see you again on your next visit!

Little gem, hidden away in Murwillumbah
Apr. 2019
Next time you're travelling down the coast from Queensland to NSW, why not stop at Murwillumbah for morning tea or lunch and check out the Tweed Regional Museum. It's in a lovely restored old building, is wheelchair accessible, has changing displays and is free.

Hi Cathy - you are too kind! Thanks for leaving us a great review! The building was the former the original Tweed Shire Council Chambers of 1915, with a contemporary extension that opened in August 2014. See you again soon!

Worth the drive

Take the time to visit this museum if you are in the area. It's in the old council building which has been extended to fit their exhibits. They have some great exhibits about the local area but I found very interesting the 400 odd items of a gem collection donated to them by the family of a deceased person. Vey good museum

An absolute delight to visit
Feb. 2019 • Solo
A rare surprise, is this wonderful country Museum in Murwillumbah. It highlights the hard work of our forefathers in the timber, sugar and banana industries. Very frendly staff and volunters to offer just the right amount of assistance. Fairly new to the Museum is the rock, stone and gem collection. Although not an expect, I suggest the Museum has here something to be very proud of and a standard of collection that would match anywhere else. If you happen to be visiting the Margaret Olley gallery, I definitely recommend dropping into the Museum in town also. Thanks Murwillumbah Museum

Thanks 8maryanne8 for leaving a review and we're glad that you enjoyed your visit! The Thunder Eggs are fantastic aren't they! They were left behind after a volcano erupted more than 20 million years ago in the Tweed. We've got more than 50 of these prized rocks on display which are unique to the area .
