    Iron lung, Queanbeyan Museum


The Queanbeyan Historical Museum was first established in 1969 and is located in the historic Police Sergeant’s Residence, 10 Farrer Pl, Queanbeyan, constructed in 1876. The Museum is operated by members of the Queanbeyan and District Historical Museum Society Inc., (QDHMS) in a partnership with the Queanbeyan City Council (QCC).

The Museum has a strong focus on the history of Queanbeyan and surrounding district, with a broad collection of over 5,000 items that includes furniture, textiles, technological objects, costumes, pictures, maps, objects, and photographs. There is currently an active programme of changing exhibitions with regular opening hours and regular events.

The Museum of Queanbeyan aims to express the sense of history, place and identity in the Queanbeyan region.

It does this by operating a museum, developing a collection and promoting historical activities that are interesting, educational and relevant to both residents and visitors.

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.
