Better access to local history

Filed in Just In by June 16, 2021

IN 1870 gaols were not built with disability access in mind, but thanks to a government grant two new ramps have been installed at the old lock-up, ensuring everyone can access the Scone Museum.

The Museum and Research Centre hold a treasure trove of local artefacts and detailed chronicles of the people and events which shaped the town of Scone.

Visitors from throughout Australia visit the Historical Society to trace their family tree’s branches back to Scone and talk to the local volunteers to eagerly dig up stories to bring their research to life.

The new ramps won’t only help more visitors access our local history, but also the keepers of our history – the valuable volunteers.

While the Museum is open on Wednesday and Sunday, the volunteers also have changing historical displays in Campbell’s Corner and the local Library. 

  • Museum Hours: 9:30am – 2:30pm Wednesday and 2:30pm – 4:30pm Sunday.
  • Research Centre Hours: Wednesday 9:30am – 2:30pm.
  • Where: 43-47 Kingdon Street, Scone.
  • M: 0476 471 089.
  • PO Box 339, Scone. NSW. 2337.
