About us

COVID-19 update – 3 August 2020

We have temporarily closed our facilities to protect our volunteers, members and the public, and to assist with the wider efforts to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.

Currently we are unable to provide an indication as to when the Maldon District Museum will be reopening. We will monitor Government directions and look forward to being able to reopen again soon.

The History Research Centre will be closed to the public until further notice. Our volunteers will continue to handle requests for information and research. Please contact us via email at hrc@maldonmuseum.com.au. The telephone has an answering system but it will not be monitored regularly so it will be better to send an email.



Maldon District Museum and History Research Centre hold wonderful collections of artefacts, photographs and historical records related to the Maldon District which are used to tell our stories

Our collection was started in 1966 by the Maldon Progress, Publicity and Tourist Association, and since 1993 has been under the custodianship of Maldon Museum & Archives Association Inc.

The collection continues to grow, and our members and volunteers continue to research, document, preserve and present it in a way which helps visitors to understand the past, reflect on the present and look to the future.

Our Association is largely self-reliant. Its successful operation relies on the commitment and huge contribution of time and expertise of our many volunteers and supporters, and income primarily produced from museum entrance and research fees, and membership subscriptions. From time to time financial assistance has been received from various funding bodies for special projects, for example conservation and equipment purchases.

The district settlements covered by the collection include Baringhup, Bradford, Eaglehawk, Gowar, Maldon, Muckleford, Neereman, Nuggetty, Pollard, Ravenswood South, Sandy Creek, Shelbourne, Tarrangower, Walmer, Woodbrook (Chinaman’s Creek), parts of Eddington and Welshman’s Reef, and the Cairn Curran Reservoir construction settlement at Baringhup (1947 to 1956).
