Kandos is the town that made the cement that made Sydney.

Established by the cement works in 1914, Kandos thrived as a modern 20th century town in a spectacular rural setting.
With the cement works closing in 2013, Kandos Museum has a vital role in preserving the town’s industrial and social history.

The museum is a community-run permanent home for a collection of stories, objects and photographs that bring this history to life.

Kandos Museum is owned and operated by Kandos Museum Incorporated, a not-for-profit, NSW incorporated association.
The museum is run by local volunteers.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
