Creswick Museum Special Committee
The Creswick Museum Special Committee was established by Council to administer, manage and control the historic Creswick Museum building and collection of artworks and artefacts. This special committee is made up of volunteers from the community, who work to preserve and share the history of Creswick. The accredited museum is a member of Australian Museums and Galleries Association.
The Museum is housed in the former Municipal Offices and was built in 1876, a magnificent two storey National Trust building. The Museum has been fortunate to receive several bequests, works of the Lindsay family, paintings by Moyle and Tibbits, which illustrate early Creswick. Of note, Victor Litherland bequeathed to the people of Creswick the paintings from his studio. The Museum is open 11am to 3.30pm Weekends and Public Holidays. The museum is not serviced during the week.
The Research Centre, which houses the museum’s collection of digital collection of Creswick Advertisers, maps, publications on the Borough and Shire of Creswick, is located on the corner of Cambridge and Raglan Street. The Research Centre is opened Friday and Saturday 11am to 3pm.
For further information on the Museum please contact the Creswick Museum on 5345 2845 or Hepburn Shire Council 5348 2306. Website www.creswickmuseum.org.au.
The Creswick Museum Special Committee meets on the first Monday of the month at 4.30pm, at the Creswick Hub.
All interested members of the community are encouraged to attend.
