Things to Know

Entry to the museum is free.  If you enjoy your visit please make a donation so we can continue our heritage work.

Research assistance

We have a small research library available for public use.  As a volunteer run museum we are currently unable to assist with genealogy requests.  If you require access to archival materials please contact us a minimum of two weeks prior to your visit.  Research fees may apply.

Food is not allowed in the museum

Lawrence has lovely cafes and picnic tables for you to enjoy, but please finish your food and drink before exploring the museum.
