OUR STORY

The Redland Museum’s vision is to be a dynamic, inclusive social history museum that reflects the stories of our community while creating an engaging space for discovery.

Redland Museum

Redland Museum will celebrate its Golden Jubilee in 2022. Over 50 years, a succession of mostly volunteers, initially led by Rotarian Norman Dean, worked tirelessly to make the Museum what it is today. 

What started out as an attempt to save heritage horse-drawn vehicles and farm machinery in the Redlands turned into a significant social history museum with the types of artefacts increasing to include many historicaly important objects.

Along the way, the building grew, in stages as funds became available thanks mainly to Rotary, the Redland Shire /City Council and generous benefactors. Today, it is a vibrant cultural hub that not only displays fascinating objects but provides exhibitions, lively entertainment and opportunities for the education of students.
