“Preserving our heritage.”

Cromwell Museum can be found in the heart of the Cromwell Mall. It is open seven days a week from 10am – 4pm except for Christmas Day and Easter Friday and is Council owned but under the care of the Cromwell Museum Trust, headed by Director Edith McKay. The personnel helping are volunteers and bring a wide range of attributes and a wealth of information to the museum.

The Museum does not charge for entry but a gold coin donation is appreciated to help in the maintenance and developing new exhibitions.

The collections held by the museum have been built up over the years by donations and are of huge importance to the Cromwell township and surrounding area. Of particular interest to visitors and locals alike is the flooding of the Old Cromwell Town and surrounding orchards as part of the process of forming Lake Dunstan and the building the Clyde Dam.

The archaeological material and photographs are of national importance because the area has been subject of intensive archaeological investigation and research on both prehistoric and historic sites.
