Shellharbour City Museum
Shellharbour City Museum (formerly Tongarra Museum) is Shellharbour’s local history museum. We aim to share stories, past and present, of the people, places and events that make our great city what it is today.
Visit our museum to discover more about the history of Shellharbour through changing exhibitions of Aboriginal and European culture. Our collection includes artefacts, photographs, oral histories, maps, lithographs and historic documents that relate to Shellharbour City and its people.
Museum staff and volunteers provide assistance with research and local & family history. Our resources include publications, valuation books, cemetery records, building registers, conservation reports and a selection of historical maps to help your research.
