Camden Museum


Situated in the centre of Camden’s historic precinct the Museum features displays highlighting the local Aboriginal community, the Macarthur family, agricultural industries, the Nepean River and its place in the community and women’s history. 

The collection is particularly strong in photography, archives and over 2500 objects. The Museum has an active education program covering several key learning areas of the school syllabus. A Federation grant has facilitated new and improved exhibitions and site interpretation.

Camden Museum was established in the former School of Arts and Municipal Council building in 1970 and is operated by the Camden Historical Society.
