The Tumut Museum is managed by the members of the Tumut & District Historical Society which was formed in 1962. The Museum collection began in 1975 and was opened on its present site in 1979.

The  focus of the Museum is on our collection of Miles Franklin memorabilia, Historical Photographic Collection and items of agricultural machinery relating to the Tumut district. We also collect other items of significance to our community.

In the past few years, with grants from the Tumut Community Foundation, we have followed  a refurbishment program to update each room in the Museum to improve access to the collection and display areas.

We are currently working on a “Doctors, Nurses & Midwives” Exhibition and have begun gathering material to publish a book on “Tumut- the Early Years”.

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.
