Merimbula Old School Museum

Merimbula Old School Museum is located in the heart of Merimbula at 85 Main Street. The Heritage listed building is constructed from locally quarried stone and is a rare example of the teacher’s residence and Schoolroom being under the one roof. The school was built primarily, in 1875, to educate the children of Munn’s Maizena workers.

The building comprises a number of separate rooms. The largest, the old Schoolroom, contains an illustration of the town of Merimbula and local areas. Other rooms include the recreation of a classroom typical of the era, the old kitchen and a rotating display from the Trevor Kennedy Oyster Plate Collection. Our grounds also display artefacts including historic machinery, an oyster punt and a tipping wagon. Displays are taken from our extensive collection of artefacts, photographs and documents. We also have a large collection of oral histories.
