Exhibitions 2019

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.
