    Missing Links

    Volunteers have researched, gathered, delivered and assembled an amazing local heritage collection in the few short years since the Museum was established. These results have stemmed from a proactive approach to the preservation of important reminders of years past. Today, more than ever, it is imperative that this work continue.

    Filling the gaps in our local history in terms of pioneering families, housing, farming, small business, community services, recreational activities and lifestyles is paramount. Preservation of rare and unusual artefacts, old photographs and video become treasured assets for all to enjoy. Donations are always welcome.

    Group Visits

    One great way to acknowledge the quality of displays and the efforts of volunteers is by arranging a group visit. Schools and touring parties gain great benefit and enjoyment from their visits so get together with your friends, family members, workmates, social club etc and drop in for a collective reminisce or two. For further information and bookings, click Group Visit.

    Word of Mouth

    The best form of promotion is word of mouth so if you have enjoyed your visit to the Nambour Museum, please tell your friends, family and equally importantly the business sector. Often, however, the words alone do not produce the desired action so don’t hesitate to tap them on the shoulder and drag them along. Don’t forget to “like” on Facebook and express your experience on Trip Advisor please.

    Public Donations

    Admission prices are maintained at very modest levels to ensure that everyone in the community can afford to visit this important facility. The range of visitors is testimony of its value. From school children to seniors, university researchers to inquisitive family members, television and radio station programs plus increasing overseas visitors, the facility has broad appeal.

    With a heavy dependence on admission fees, donations from the public are most welcome. Donations can be offered at any time, by post or when visiting. Why not consider extending a suitable donation when planning your estate. Funding can be reserved for a heritage project or facility of your choice.

With modest entry fees, sponsorship from the business community and private individuals helps ease the financial pressures. Such support better enables Museum members and volunteers to deliver the Nambour Museum to the highest ranking among regional museums and to provide the town with an attraction worthy of inclusion on any tour itinerary. A mutually rewarding sponsorship package can be developed upon request.
