Remembrance Room

Ongoing Exhibition: Upper Level

Features a fascinating array of war-time objects from small personal items – like a cake tin, a darned sock, a pocket knife and an Anzac memorial teatowel – to more obvious  military memorabilia such as uniforms, medals and a model of the Burrewarra Point WW2 radar station. 

Each item has a story reminding us of those locals who lived and died in the great global conflicts of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  

The Society also has a collection of documents, photographs and personal accounts dating from those times.  Local families have donated these objects to the Museum so that their memories of their relatives could be preserved for future generations.
