The Moruya and District Historical Society is an organisation dedicated to preserving the history of Moruya and the surrounding areas on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. The Society’s Museum is located in the heritage-listed ‘Emmott’s House’ in Campbell Street, Moruya.

The Historical Society has a rich collection of artefacts which range in date from pre-European settlement to the modern day. The museum also houses an extensive collection of documents, microfilms and photographs for those who are interested in researching local history.

Attached to the Moruya Museum is our Genealogy Research Room. A wide-ranging collection of microfiche, microfilm, CDRoms and printed material are available for family history researchers. Volunteers assist visitors to trace their family history. A charge of $10 is made for non-members to use the facilities.
