Community Heritage Grant 2022

Emu Park Historical Museum is thrilled to be a 2022 Community Heritage Grant recipient. After an assessment of the museum’s collection by Dr Melanie Piddocke, some items of the collection were deemed in need of preservation. The money given to the museum by the National Library of Australia will help preserve some of the collections most precious items. The Emu Park Historical Museum would like to extend a huge thank you to the National Library of Australia for their generosity in helping preserve some of the museum’s collection.

Australian National Maritime Museum Grant (ANMM)

In 2022 our museum received a grant from the (ANMM) through the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme (MMAPSS) to develop Maritime Themes for Emu Park Historical Museum. This grant of $5,250 enabled our museum, over the past 12 months, to rearrange and house our exhibits in protective and interactive displays units. We also set up a unit to recognise the contribution made by our Model Makers

The Countess Russell Bell interactive Display. Come learn the history and ring the bell. Ear plugs may be necessary

Emu Park and the Surrounding District Display. Come learn something about your own back yard

A tribute to the craftsmen who made a lot of our display models. Come and see the ship in a bottle and even in a light bulb. Please don’t turn it on.
