Sutherland Shire Historical Society & Museum

The Sutherland Shire Historical Society & Museum is on the move, we plan to reopen in September 2021, at 88 Venetia Street, Sylvania.

Sutherland Shire Historical Society, founded in 1966, is a community group interested in preserving and raising awareness of our local history – from Aboriginal occupation to the arrival of Captain Cook and white settlement up to present day industry.

We tell the story of our heritage in various ways: collecting artefacts for display in our museum, researching and publishing histories for our quarterly Bulletin, our website and other publications, and we work to help preserve our natural and built heritage.

Our aboriginal display includes a bark canoe and a king plate, just to name a few items, view and touch a section of the actual ballast from the Endeavour.

We specifically cater for primary schools with a touch screen and an outdoor area that is undercover.
