Exhibitions

A unique feature of Redland Museum is our program of changing exhibitions. A new major exhibition is mounted in a beautiful 100 square meter dedicated galley every six to eight weeks throughout the year. These major exhibitions are drawn from the Museum’s reserve collection, or from the works and collections of local artists or community organisation.

In addition a variety of smaller exhibitions are presented from time to time, showcasing the hobbies, collections and talents of Museum members.

These displays are renowned for the variety and quality of their content.

We have also put together a number of online exhibitions. Please enjoy these wonderful videos, until your next visit to the Museum.

New Exhibition
ROTARY 100 EXHIBITION
17th May – 30th June

Rotary in Australia and New Zealand are celebrating 100 years of service. From 17 May to 30 June 2021, Redland Museum will host an exhibition featuring projects of the Rotary Clubs of Quandamooka Country.

The exhibition will feature displays of historical projects undertaken by Clubs locally including The Rocks at Tingalpa Creek, the Santas displayed at Wynnum, Manly and Capalaba, jarjums yarnin’ literacy project at Dunwich, and the Lodge at Redlands Hospital.

International Projects relating to water, health, education, and peace will also be highlighted. Of particular interest is Rotary’s project in the eradication of polio. Rotary International has reduced the number of cases from approximately 360,000 in 126 countries to less than 100 in 2 countries in the last 40 years. Several local Rotarians involved in immunisation campaigns overseas will have their stories, caps and vests exhibited.

Whilst at the exhibition, check out the fascinating Textiles displays, Including Luis Filardi Carneiro’s blazer wore in 1989 as an exchange student from Brazil to Cleveland Rotary Club. Three decades afterwards, Luis returned on holidays with his wife and two children to Cleveland. He stayed and in 2019-2020 became the President of Cleveland Rotary.

It is fitting that the exhibition is at the Redland Museum as the Museum was a project of the Cleveland Rotary Club. Norm Dean OAM, a past President of Cleveland Rotary was the inaugural Redland Museum President. In more recent times, the Rotary and Rotaract Clubs of the Redlands developed the Rotary Heritage Library at the Museum to celebrate the centenary of The Rotary Foundation.
