Come to our Museum and immerse yourself in the varied history of Williamstown. You will find our two-storeyed Heritage Listed building at 5 Electra Street, built in 1860 as a Mechanics Institute and Library. The collection highlights the diverse activities of the inhabitants of this historical seaport with photographs, paintings, artifacts and models which also include sporting memorabilia.

Though we have a core static display, individual exhibits are regularly changed and expanded to add variety and interest.


We are always pleased to receive donations of objects, photographs or other items that help tell the story of our local history and meet our collection criteria. Please contact us for further information.
