The multi-award winning Port Macquarie Museum is a great place to explore Port Macquarie's rich and unique cultural heritage. Home to the Birpai people, Port Macquarie was settled as a British penal establishment in 1821 and is now a popular holiday and sea-change destination.
The collection comprises objects, archives, books, ephemera, artwork and photographs and is displayed across 14 rooms and galleries in a series of themed exhibitions. Displays are regularly updated and changed with temporary exhibitions featured from time to time.
The Museum was a finalist in the 2017 NSW Tourism Awards and winner of the 2016 North Coast Tourism Awards cultural tourism category for the third consecutive year. The Museum also won a 2015 IMAGinE award for Our Rivers Our History online exhibition http://www.oroh.com.au/
