Hurstville Museum & Gallery
Hurstville Museum & Gallery opened in 2004 and is maintained by Georges River Council. Located on MacMahon Street, in the centre of the Hurstville CBD, it is the only regional museum and gallery in the St George district. A popular destination for thousands of local and interstate visitors each year, the Museum & Gallery is a vibrant hub of community activity, with regular talks, programs, special events, and dynamic exhibitions. The Museum & Gallery also offers a range of syllabus-linked educational programs for primary and secondary students.
Hurstville Museum & Gallery is dedicated to preserving the unique history of the St George region, as well as working with local multicultural communities to develop exciting art and history exhibitions and public programs.
The MAGNA award-winning permanent exhibition St George Stories: people – places – community explores the domestic and working lives of the St George community and explores ways in which the region has changed over the last 150 years. It provides an opportunity to learn about the communities who have shaped the region, from the earliest people to present day communities. Visitors are encouraged to engage with stories through multimedia and interactive displays, as well as discovering old photographs from the local studies collection in the Snapshot Gallery.
