You’ll find displays of military memorabilia; Australian domestic items; musical instruments; hotel artefacts from the kitchen & bar of the Barrington Hotel in the Copeland goldfields; A.A. Company documents; heritage gold field maps, clothing & uniforms; full-sized recreated scenes featuring a 1940’s classroom from Upper Bowman school plus Copeland Gaol with gold mining artefacts; family archives, photographs, old cameras, telephone systems, antique furniture, geological specimens plus more!
We are noted for our informative tours around town for visiting coaches to the Museum which take approx 1 hour highlighting Gloucester’s history. The museum is also known for its extensive collection of Australian rocks and minerals.
