About

The award-winning Albury LibraryMuseum features state-of-the-art technology, engaging interactive exhibitions, reading and research in one location. Designed by nationally renowned architects Ashton Ragatt McDougall, the facility is Australia’s first library and museum under one roof.

The LibraryMuseum is a superb showcase for national and international touring exhibitions, and for works from the AlburyCity Collection housed in our permanent exhibition, Crossing Place.

This world-class exhibit uses an engaging collection of objects, oral stories and film to tell the story of Albury, from its first contact with the Wiradjuri people, the traditional owners of the land, to the city we know today. 

Crossing Place traces the settlement of Albury by land and water; the influx of new settlers who passed through the Bonegilla Migrant Centre after World War II, its federal ambitions, and the impact on the region of the government’s decentralisation policy. Integral to the story is the Murray River. Children can explore a river installation via a special kids only display of river artefacts, animals, sounds and smells.

Crossing Place is the starting point for many of the educational programs offered by the LibraryMuseum, including resources for schoolteachers, an audio tour and guided tours for members of the public.
