The Queenscliffe Historical Museum is situated in Hesse Street between the post office and library, in the township of Queenscliff.

Opened in 1974, specifically to house socially historical materials peculiar to the Borough of Queenscliffe (which includes Queenscliff, Point Lonsdale and Swan Island) the museum is home to many thousands of items including photographs, documents, paintings, newspapers and toys, just to mention a few.

The story of the Borough of Queenscliffe is displayed through a representative selection from the Museum's collections of personal memorabilia, household artifacts, furniture, maps, photographs, documents and works of art.

This rich source of information complements the hundreds of personal documents and diaries that have been donated by descendants of pioneers.

Many of the visitors just enjoy looking at the past, but research is often the reason for a visit. Whether you are a local resident checking on family history, local property titles or a student preparing a project, you will not be disappointed with the resources available.

When next in Queenscliff, pay the Queenscliffe Historical Museum a visit and become immersed in the pioneering days that made the township what it is today.
