FROM THE OFFICIAL MUSEUM LEAFLET:

The Victoria Jubilee Museum is a typical Victorian hotchpotch and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Whichever way you turn there is bound to be something of interest to catch your eye.

The Museum Society was formed in 1884 by the Rev. Charles Tiplady Pratt.

The Museum building was started in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee and was officially opened in 1889.

There are exhibits of domestic bygones, Victoriana, memorabilia, natural history, local history and local industries. There is also a collection of unusual items including a two headed lamb, a cobra in combat with a mongoose, a mantrap, an intestinal stone from a horse weighing 9 pounds, a boy’s boot wrecked when struck by lightning and there is so much more to see.

VISITORS ARE AMAZED WHEN THEY STEP INSIDE. WE THINK IT IS WELL WORTH A VISIT AND FEEL SURE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
