A wealth of history is waiting for you at the Euroa Museum
a huge collection of local artefacts arranged throughout the building in a series of rooms which are designed to display particular themes.
The museum holds an extensive collection of clothing, household items, farm machinery, war memorabilia and many more visitors are able to develop an understanding and appreciation of life in a rural community over time by examining the collections of everyday and significant items.
The museum has welcomed hundreds of visitors through its doors this year, not to mention those that took part in tours that the museum organised both in town and around the district.
Recently museum volunteers have produced a calendar for 2019 that contains a collection of some of the fascinating images of the past that have been donated and collected over the years.
Copies of the calendar are available at the museum.
Numerous other historical books, references souvenirs and memorabilia are also available for purchase.
The museum holds a great collection of photos, along with local and family history.
The local Genealogical Group meet regularly once a month and do a great job assisting others with enquiries and helping with family research.
Volunteers have also recently been digitising shire rate books and the large collection of historical maps of the area.
The local museum (the old Farmers Arms Hotel which was first licensed in 1876) is located on Kirkland Ave and is open for visitors on Wednesdays from 1pm to 4pm and on Sundays or at other times by appointment.
Wheelchair access is available to the main building, the Eliza Forlonge Cottage and to the grounds.
Anyone interested in joining the Euroa Historical and Genealogical Society is most welcome.
