    School Visits

    The Museum welcomes educational visits from schools and colleges throughout the Sunshine Coast. We offer students and teachers a wonderful opportunity to explore as a group the exciting reminders of the past lifestyles and technologies. Visits always invoke a combination of fun learning and thought provoking insights into history and heritage values.

    School visits can be organised on any weekday to suit curriculum requirements. Telephone (07) 5441 2119 during opening hours (Wednesday to Saturday 1pm-4pm) or simply click School Visit below.

    Group Tours

    A great way for seniors to enjoy a visit to the Museum is with a group. Group visits have proven popular with residents of retirement villages, nursing homes, social and business clubs. Remembering and sharing life’s experiences is much more rewarding in the company of friends and colleagues. Often, the experience assists in documenting those important historical moments and events.

    Recent Initiatives

    Over recent weeks and months, a number of key projects aimed at improving the quality of the venue and visitor experience have been completed.

    Windows

    Impressive historical images of the old town now adorn the front glass windows. The perforated window decals also reduce the heat factor while still allowing clear vision from the inside. On the western side of the building, window tinting has also addressed the heat factor and added protection for exhibits.

    Air Conditioning

    New air conditioning units are now operating in almost all of our display rooms!

    Painting

    The exterior of the large timber structure has been repainted with many internal walls of the historic building recently receiving similar treatment to refresh the look of the building inside and out..

    New Display

    An exciting new display which will focus on the old PMG / Post Office days when letters, telegrams and manual telephone exchanges reigned supreme is presently under construction.
