The purpose of Mount Victoria Historical Museum is to collect, preserve, research and exhibit for the Mount Victoria and District Historical Society Incorporated, those objects which illustrate and record the story of man and nature within the district.
The objects and specimens collected by the museum relate to the area’s past in the fields of natural resources, European exploration, settlement, culture, agriculture, industry, tourism, manufacturing, transportation and trade, all of which contributed significantly to the area’s post-colonisation history.
Items in the collection will be made available to those who wish to study them on the premises, except where they are fragile or rare.
The museum is open to the general public on a regular basis for education and enjoyment.
The Society interprets its collection by means of exhibits and publications and provides information and other services on request.
The Society abides by the ethical guidelines as determined by the Museums Association of Australia and cooperates with other museums in the state in the preservation of the country’s heritage.
