• Maldon Museum

Overview


The Maldon District Museum contains a large and diverse collection of several thousand artefacts from the district.


Our artefacts range from the unique and highly significant to the curious and commonplace; they record our history and all contribute to the rich narrative of the Maldon District. The exhibition is presented as thematic displays which interpret and present many aspects of our history. The building housing the collection is also an architectural treasure which was constructed under difficult goldfields conditions. It resulted from an early decision of the first Maldon municipal body to develop a Market Place to stimulate local trade. Construction of the first proposed building was completed in 1859, however in spite of several launches it failed as a Market House and sat under-utilised for some years.
